winter in spring

this spring
the winter cold
still goes deep
with every shiver
i go deeper too 
into the warmth and softness 
of God's love
wishing to hibernate 
but choosing to keep awake
to settle into the silence
the gentle comfort
of dark quiet hours
milder somehow
on weary eyes 
willing even through tears
 to gaze steady
into all that is pain 
and loss and beauty 
and grace
and with gratitude
there find His loving face
