You Could Be Home

frozen planter

Are you a nevermore,

or a not yet?

A foreign shore,

or a safe bet?

Who you could be

is not written in stone;

shovel the snow,

and you could be home.

    There is comfort in the safe bet, the familiar, but I want to grow too…be so much more.

    This reads like a Rumi proverb. Cool.

    “Ponderings From Place Planted”

    I am old and I am bent,
    first spring came and then it went,
    then burnt out in summer’s glee–
    thought like fool that I was free–
    autumn’s achings crisp unravel;
    now, mind gone… Where’s that shovel?!

    Oh, a WOW-Wonderful message for us, Melody!! I’m seeing, “Shovel the Snow” on T-shirts, billboards, coffee mugs, ball caps, you name it–think of all the people who would ask, “what does it mean?” An opportunity to encourage, give testimony even. Wowza!!

    I love what Caddo is thinking! And the message / lesson / take away is terrific! Let’s shovel! God bless you!
