catching the first morning sun

I turned off the screens

and went for a walk by the wood.

The bower is gone.

There is nothing to hide her.

Yet she shows no fear.

The Brave Rose


Sometimes, when it snows

I think about the brave rose

buried half alive.


Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Just out for a walk.

What good would I have to say

if God stopped to chat?


The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.
