Deep in it

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
Three feet of snow, drifts up to five,
the silence of heaven,
spread over the streets, the yards,
a prayer shawl about the city.

It will take time to dig out.
There’s no escaping this.
Walk through snow thigh deep
or snowshoe in the woods:

step high, lean carefully,
balance yourself, go slow.
Feel its arms around you.
Feel yourself belong to it.

Yet how we traipse
through this God-thick world
waist deep in glory
as if we were somewhere else.

Weather Report

all day,
all over.
Not letting up.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
