a reprieve set in a sprawling empire,

Snow in the forecast.
wood pile sits,
waiting to do what matters.
Sand Cranes share their ancient voices on high today.
Canada Geese, circling, in great numbers, harmonize.
Light heartedness transforms a sun bright day.
Northern homelands anxiously await home comings.
Whispers of Creation found.
narrow to the center of our being.
