Embers of December

embers in december


I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape- the loneliness of it- the dead feeling of winter.  Something waits beneath it- the whole story doesn’t show.  ♠ Andrew Wyeth

A week away shops and streets
Are all glitter and glare.
No clandestine chink reveals
The bone structure of holy audacity
That supports the waiting prophet.        

We must peer with inside-eyes
To catch sight of the faithful
Embers of story that wait
Behind glitter and glare.
