Stirring Hope

In deep winter, after all the seeds have flown away,
the remnants of the coneflowers remind me of the promise of new life.
I hold on to the rough beauty of winter, embracing its
lessons, embracing its hope, and most of all its  emptiness.
The winter is for emptying, then waiting,
with patience in the darkness, for the seeds of life
and love to refill my waiting soul.

  1. thank you for softening the light of this new morning with your gentle love. i too am emptying out…letting go, welcoming a new year to love. no holding back, no fear, only willingness to embrace all, to give fully, to trust.


Thank you!
