Christmas 2013

Beneath the ice
and above the fog,
on the valley floor
with bare branches
carving the winter sky
and rivers running
to the distant swelling sea,
the whole of life
like a vast circular ring
orbits the heavens
awaiting your jewel-like
facets full of forgiveness
to complete this holy creation.

  1. Forgiveness of the self precedes all other forgiveness. Once we forgive ourselves we are free to forgive with the love that was trapped in deeper darkness within. Light is free to shine through unconditional love to complete this holy creation and to create true blessings unto each other. “…jewel-like facets full of forgiveness” indeed.

    It was 14 below last night and today, Christmas Day, we have friends with us from North Carolina, a fire going and a soft snow falling….life is grand!

  3. Beautiful, Don. Your ability to convey the immanence of the natural world brings us back, again and again, to the Divine.

    That I have a place in this cycle has always been a source of awe and humility. That others join us there is a blessing beyond measure.
