A Midnight Peek out My Window

A Midnight Peek out My Window

The full moon glowed sending crooked fingers
Of shadows of bare trees across the yard.
Frozen dew formed frost on grass all aglow.
The air was still - no outside creature stirred.
Like a scene from Lion, Witch and Wardrobe?
No - my back yard in winter without snow.

I gaze out at this ethereal scene
Thinking how very different it is.
Stars like diamonds twinkle in the sky.
Are they planets or debris left up there?
In the "big sky" country they seem so near.
One day, with Christ, I'll see and fly right by.

Morning comes with clouds and wind and snowflakes.
Now the yard is covered with sparkling white,
The fences and bushes filigreed snow.
It's good I can stay inside by the fire.
Creation's cleaned by the mantel of white.
I thank God for the peace a heart can know.


Author's note:  As I write this I'm also thinking of those who don't have a warm place to look out and those who must travel in this and pray for them and for the leaders of this nation and for a spiritual reawakening of Christians.
