The Transformation

Creek view

Winter wounds carve the deepest,

Cancerous in their cold insistence;

Glaciation leaves a mark.

But once the tears wash away the gravel,

Your new landscape will drop jaws –

As the desert was scoured into the Grand Canon,

Everest buckled and heaved with stress,

So your beauty will shine,

Common carbon to  delectable diamond.

I

     can

            see

                  your

                        sparkle

                            through the trees….

  1. Hey Melody, I’ve missed your posts and photos. Um new format. Comment box is tiny 😦

      Ha! Hello to you! Nice to hear from you. I have spent several months with very spotty and unreliable internet service, which has meant for very little Melody-lolly-gagging around cyber-space. How are things on the big rock??

  2. Yes, God is wonderful in how He uses the abuses of winter to bring glorious beauty.

      I think it is all a glorious lesson acted out for us year after year to give us hope! Spring is once again upon us – I love the hope in that! Thank you, Stephen…

    Ah, Melody, how beautiful, just like your name. I think you were born to make music with your pen!

    Classic Melody – well done. Tricky use of the word Canon!
