Clearing

So much in the questions
Are issues large and small
It’s all about a process
Of working through them all

Don’t let them all just fester
So take one off the top
Continue to another
You’ll find it hard to stop

But then will come the clearing
This is not a metaphor
More like a subtle notice
Of things that are in store

Not so much a warning
But notice to prepare
And connect with many others
With whom purpose you do share

The Light of Christmas

Gather round my family
One more time for me
Celebrate the season
As you light the Christmas tree

The branches need the tinsel
The tree still needs a star
And stockings need their rightful place
For family near and far

It’s more than just a gesture
Or motions you go through
It’s all part of this special time
That we show in what we do

So set the family china
Put the star upon the tree
And know that special twinkle
Reflects your love for me

Warming

So begins the final chapter
No where to land the lonely raptor
Washed away familiar perch
Leaving many in a learch

It’s but the start of what’s in store
That eats away at every shore
It’s here where most the damage felt
When does the snow begin to melt

It’s all too fast the temp does change
The landscape quick to rearrange
No dams to build no levies made
The sun comes out and dreams do fade

The only choice is not be there
Where now the snow is in the air
For wide the river soon will grow
From all the rage of melting snow
