Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Winter Solitude

on December 26, 2016

Rich days to prepare
Hustle bustle, shop and cook
Join in festive meal

Christmas now is past
Gift to savor candle light
Settle into calm

    Glad you like it, Christie. One of my favorite lines (roughly) is ” I know the kitchen table exists because I scrub it.”
