Patience in Sadd-ness
Ah, January, welcome friend,

Your frosty face appears in time

To blanket nerves exposed, to mend

Our weary with your swaddling rime.


Frozen trickles carved on panes,

Silent, subtle, hardened trails,

Gossamer chrysalis formed from skeins

Of finest thread hued winter pale,


Coalesce and join intent,

Begirding all in chill embrace

Though to our Phoenix...Heaven sent,

Cold coals perceive their healing place.


Post-Yuletide folk may sense a surge,

Crescendo in unsated ache

Grown bearish with strong primal urge

To seek that dark, suspended state


Where prior year and all its grief,

Allowed a space to fallow lay,

Will find fresh seeds of faith, belief

That darkened tombs can be arrayed.


Through scourge of winter, swaddled, still,

Life renewed slowly creeps,

One day a Son will warm our sill,

Butterflies then be released!
