When Winter Thaws


Sparkle-shadows hem you in,

Marshmallow caps where growth has been;

Wait, my soul, be still, and pause,

Spring will bloom when Winter thaws.

      Our lives need the pause that nature builds in – night, seasons, overcast days – whether we are wise enough to take heed or not! Thanks for your encouragement…

    I love “sparkle-shadows” especially–it’s like what you were talking about in some of mine, contrary words that “Work” for a perfect image. I can see it easily–and dare say my shadows do wear sparkles these days!
