It has been a long winter.
The darkness comes in with the snow,
The window is numb to my touch,
My fingertips burn.
Tonight I look up,
The sky is cloudless and the sun setting in the west on the Hudson River takes my breath away.
It has been a long time since I have seen the sun set,
The days are getting longer and I know there is still a long road ahead.
There are daffodils at the florist.
Spring, is slowly finding its way here.
Thoughts on a January Friday
There is fear in the air today.
If that fear is a bad thing.
Only when one is scared can one be brave,
Change comes on the wind and I refuse to break.
Charted territory is only such because someone thrust into the unknown to make the map.
I will not let this fear take me.
I will be scared, I will let it make me strong.
I can face this thing that comes along.
Into the Starlight
We can leave the night on.
I haven’t had a night that I don’t want to end in so long.
Take me, and bring me back to perfection in the darkness.
