Walking where there was snow

A few short weeks ago

seems to emphasise

the wonder

and glory

of the life on display, 

both in its familiarity 

and its foreign character.

Then it occurs to me 

that I may be meeting 

this tableau 

with an increased sense 

of relaxation 

that is enabling 

a fuller awareness 

of my surroundings.

Feeling more truly 


than I have 

in some time.

Swathed by sun and blue sky 

this leaves me 

deeply grateful 

for this double gift.
