In black of night surround

Breath’s rhythm only sound

In chilling air of winter night

Prayer in stillness soul’s delight

In winter’s chill no flower stays

But snowfall feels like holidays

For children’s fun collecting snow

Making balls they playing throw

On cold ice bleak and frozen lake

Still inner child will yearn to skate

Those much stronger don’t survive

But whose warm spirits kept alive

Nature’s drive - adopt adapt improve

No struggle or competitor remove

A presented need to change and thrive

Her resourcefulness meets to provide


O Lord thaw my cold and selfish heart with the warmth of thy love. Thou who freely provides all resources and purity like the bright whiteness of snow. Beauty and hardship come together I do not seek one without the other, only adaptability that I may rightly choose in joy.
