how many mornings

how many mornings
have I read and looked
at birch trees in sun
and blue sky?

and yet today
is the most beautiful

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5: 4 (KJV)

Winter Drive

Yesterday afternoon, Karl and I went for a drive. We have a few drives we enjoy over the seasons. We watch the lake levels of Lake Michigan. And how the landscape has changed with the loss of ash trees. The snow on fallen trees in a forest creates a different kind of winter image, with its own beauty.

Holiday lights are gone, and how beautiful they were in the towns. Everyone seemed to make an extra effort to add some joy to the holidays. When we returned home around 4 PM, there was still daylight. And we will keep our low energy lights, with their bright colors, in the house for a time.

We thought of the people who keep the power lines clear and watch the trees to care for them before they fall. Thank you.
