Open Your Eyes, Sweet Child
Baby girl, lost and alone, I know why you cry. But the hot tears chill too soon, dripping cold from your chin, with no one there to catch them. You’re a flower not yet blooming, caught in the dark winds of winter. Your grey sweater, your blue bonnet, your icy eyes camouflage you in the shifting paleness of winter’s morning. Hush, little one. Let the frosty stillness dance, and fill with crystalline song. Not a wind can stop the music of the Snow Angel. She comes in the flurries, kisses the earth with glowing silver, and thereby shelters all that is precious. She’s here, precious one. “Open your eyes, sweet child.”
Creatures of Light
Find your feet, little girl. Dig your roots deep. The warmth of shelter has brought a golden glow to your head, and the grace of patient discipline enlivens your dreams. Find your own unforced rhythm, dancing to the song of light. Revel in luminous echoes, and find yourself strong, bolstered by your constant guardian, your Angel of Light. Shrug off anxiety. Leave it in the shadows where it belongs. You are a creature of light.
Hear My Song
Take a breath. Steady hand, click the shutter. This moment, when your heart throbs loud in your ears and your eyelashes feel tangled--this moment is yours. Do you want to fly? I will show you. Do you wish for beauty, wisdom, adventure? It’s all within you, sweet child. Let it unfold. Grow in grace. Trust the goodness of eternity, beating melodically in your heart.
Winter Shelters Life
The wind of winter is inevitable. It’s cold, and it pilfers breath like a highwayman. Sheltering life is my mission: giving the opportunity for new growth from what appears to be a stifling, lonely death. I blanket the flowers with my snow, forcing them to tap down deep into their roots for resilience until the warmth of spring can resurrect their brightness.
“Even though the snow may blow, there’s not a wind can stop my music, for I know that winter shelters life.” --Sarah Quartel
