Winter light

February 9, 2010

Sometimes you’re looking for magic

and then when it comes

you’re too busy to notice.

Sometimes when the clouds have moved away from the sun

and the light is just right

you’re distracted and looking the other way.

Sometimes you forget that miracles aren’t just the big life-changing moments

but the small life-pausing moments.


And then sometimes

you’re standing still

at the right place at the right time

with your eyes wide open.

And suddenly

you remember what awe feels like.

    I love the light at this time of the year, returning, growing stronger. It feels me with hope for longer, warmer days ahead.
