Hope In Season

The same branch now
as bare can be
belongs to my favorite
fragrant tree
though she hides
her scent in frost
her summer goodness
is not lost
nor are the nests
so full of eggs
empty now
save just the dregs
soon spring will call
to sap and leaf
her beauty nature
will complete
blest the soul
who sees the glimmer
of her abundance
in darkest winter

-Hope in Season by Kat 
 for Cheryl Martin's Birthday

For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift. -John 1:16

  1. Cold snap in the midwest. Freezing here. Summer sounds good to me.

    Happy birthday, Cheryl!
