A Light Ahead…

If all winter days
and all memories of winter days
could be shaped into one day of your life…

would the sun be shining on frozen glass
and go slipping away on heels of leather
down, down to the schoolyard gate…

or would the crunch of your boots make the only sound
on a dark evening
muffled by falling snow
(can anyone remember the quiet of such a night?)

The road winds away through the powdered elm trees
branches lifted like lonely arms…

and then a glow in a window ahead
to light your way

In Him was life and the life was the light of men
The light shined in the darkness
and the darkness comprehended it not.. John 1:5-6
