prayer - 4

early Christmas baby
too new to this world
labouring
in this cold day light

tuck her up tight
cradled behind
this guitar neck
as gentle chords ring

prayer - 3

walking
 - some would say trudging
down the forest
valley path
light snow
dusted robes

white bended boughs
a monk on bended knee
offering winter prayers

prayer - 2

a few more steps
crunching
through the cold layers
deep icy snow

pause  - pray
enfolded deep
in bending
hemlock boughs

offering a moment
not asking
no
only abiding

early morning sounds

crackling
of spinning vinyl
and fresh
hearth flames

soft gentle
distant background
noise
