Snowfalls and blizzards
cloak the land with pristine beauty
yea though the ice
sends daggers of fear.
Earthquakes and tremors
shake the earth with latent force
while internal shifting
rises with unexpected rifts.
Elements of isolation
increase the sense of helplessness
as the silence of solitude
reverberates against memories.
Unpredictable and unexpected
happens every day and every way
leaving us to believe and
to ruminate as if there is no Sovereignty.
But the Truth of the matter
does not depend on circumstances
which rob of hope and eschew purpose
as if the unpredictable is a damning certainty.
To work harder or to be in control
is not the antidote to life’s poisons and threats
but there must be Faith in the Truth
for security and sanity to settle the heart and soul.
