Snow lays a canvas
Bridge boards covered nimbus white
Trees blooming white ice
Joseph's 2021 Home Photo Challenge Cyranny's #WOTD "snow"
In Absolute, Joyful Dependance on the Grace and Love of God
A friend’s betrayal. The first crack in the heart. A child’s heart. Swallowing a sob, a gurgle hard against the throat. A nudiustertian heartbeat ago. The storm settles.
That friendship went the way of trains into the sunset, trains with Hercules propellers in a steampunk show, and a suddenly shrunken figure, lean with knowing, stiffening its back against the world.
The heart armored, now slow to trust, still easily betrayed, always anticipates the moment of departure, inexorable in its movement like the ticking of a clock, yet attuned to distant trumpets ushering in the dawn.
Knew caskets of ice
Joseph at Lillie-Put has added a twist to 2021’s Home Photo Challenge: “a brief description of each photo … and a Haiku to go along with it.” Sounds good! Join in.
Cheerful mug outlives
Two Christmases, keeps good will
In this “MRS.” heart.
Buds strain to darkness
Uncertain the eve of day
Till blooms the dawn.
Cee's FOTD Challenge December 31, 2020
Aloft green and gold
we crowd dull bottles to ward
faitours of darkness.
We dye clarity
for gaudy tranquility
but eyes move skyward.
You are not hidden
in magnificent sky-breadth
your glory beckons.
So even pigs graze
under Your eyes, contented
while we root clamor.
These photos are from the Shenandoah Valley where light seems to reign in Edenic beauty.
