Hope

Deep calleth unto deep . . .*
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV)

Winter

Winter is colder this year, though yesterday was warmer with sun.  The days are longer, and the light is different.

We had some errands yesterday, and we went to First Watch in Mequon for a meal.  Karl went to First Watch in Florida with his mother.  We remembered our mothers.

On my way to the Milwaukee area every weekend for years, to be with my mother and help manage her home and care, I sometimes stopped at bookstores that are no longer there.   I felt loss.  Spring has arrived many times since then.

Winter is a part of Spring’s birth for me.

Garden Tea Party by Charles A. Waugaman

Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.
