snow


The world is frozen under a white shell
Hibernating, humming...
Waiting 
Readying for growth
Resting

The shell of the earth crunches under foot and under tires, marking the way of your path in even lines and ragged steps.  When the sun appears every inch glistens like there is magic underfoot and the path feels marked with meaning.  The hibernation feels marked with meaning.

The world is frozen under a white shell
Waiting, resting, protected
Alive 


With gratitude,
Joanna

put your arm around me and...


Covered Bridge, Josephine County, Oregon, built 1920 is the only remaining covered bridge in the county (photo 2015)


Put your arm around me and sit
Looking out at the possibilities 
The potential
The redemption 
Look beyond yourself 
And me
Just be here with me
Content and peaceful amidst the mess


With gratitude,
Joanna
