Moments of revelation May be missed if we do not pay Attention, open the blinds Step outside, see the light Like today When I awoke after helping hang Christmas lights on my sister’s tree To a seriously special winter wonderland Replete with God’s grace At first I could not believe what I was seeing And called Bhakti into the room to see. As I discovered and got closer Magic revealed itself to me in the form of white Patterns that almost looked like plastic webs Looked fake because they were too perfect. As we looked closer, we realized indeed They were real
And found more and more of them behind every hedge and shrub. Intricately delicately beautiful To view closely, the ice crystals Tiny yet beautiful At the same time As if God had come down and made them himself Last night Pointed spikes of ice crystals sweetly adorned the now bare maple tree In front while ice webs continued to reveal themselves We got closer to see their beauty.
