It’s a Winter Wonderland Alright! – January 8th

Outside the snow falls as I wonder why I moved to rural western New York  28 years ago

I wonder what life would have held for me if I hadn’t

I wonder where all the promise of humanity has been scattered

I wonder why the skies are no longer endless and why the captive heart no longer trembles

I wonder why I read headlines that make me weep in despair for all of us
