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.






                            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!
