Redemption 3

pulsing wood stove heat
swirls around exposed rafters
door swings
quick dash for another round
of snow chilled beers

smoke and songs
flow out

over the neighbourhood

Redemption 2

long way from winter
but hips still hurting
 from all those long
redline strides
 and hard hockey hits

wrapped in hot heat
I mow the lawn
 that four goal game
 flashing fists
 locker room beers

Redemption 1

soaring up
 high over broken glass

sweet distance
from problems
and lingering pain
