Hi everyone. I just went through a dry spell with my writing. However, I am enjoying re-discovering poetry I have written in the past. I am remembering what a healing balm writing has been in my life, definitely a Gift on the Journey. My words have brought me joy. I hope they do that for you as well. The following poem was written in 1994.


Coldness, dark skies, snow and wind;

I wait and pray for winter’s end.

Melt my frozen heart and send

Your warmth of love towards winter’s end.

Help me, Lord; My soul do mend;

Hold me close till winter’s end.

Lead me on around the bend;

I’m holding on till winter’s end. 


Stay tuned for more Gifts of Poetry from the Past on the Journey!
