Reflections on a Winter’s Day

Carol A. Hand

A crispy leaf crackles on the crusty snow
As the west winds of the winter morning blow
Accompaniment to city traffic’s steady drone
As I sit drinking my first cup of coffee, thinking, alone

As the sun breaks through the clouds, transforming hardened snow
Into a field of rainbow sparkles on the blanketed earth below
My heart touched with hope that even on the darkest day
Gratitude will reveal blessings, an inexplicable inner peace to light the way
