A Winter's Epiphany

Nov 19, 2014 09:07AM ● By Erica Shames

Timeless thoughts of a winter’s stare;

eyes gazing over a landscape bare.


Memories drift on a blustery breeze;

dying light ushers in the freeze.


Reaching out for a grasp on the present;

stillness sets in, alone, and desolate.


Future unknown, outcome uncertain;

brilliance shadowed by a drawn curtain.


Path now set, laid before me known;

closing light now emanating from home.


Enter my homestead, heart filled with glee;

two eyes of the future peering upward at me.


Trusting in him to forge forward until fulfilled;

Basis of strength, values I have instilled.


A weary mind at last permitted to rest;

reflecting on the realization of how I am blessed. – Michael A. Barron
