ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
As I look out my window at a sea of white, with 6-10″ more snow expected today and tomorrow, I wonder if winter will ever end. This everlasting season is persistent, but there is a peace about it, especially when you don’t have to travel outside.
Where do you find contentment when all around seems lost,
In city streets so dimly lit, at an expensive cost,
In valleys green where water pours through rivers pure and clean,
In the darkness of the soul within, is that were you find peace?
In a sanctuary built of stone, where your problems you release,
Do you see it in the people that you greet most every day,
Is it in the quiet laughter of a child alone at play,
Is it in the calm serenity of music, art or dance,
Or does it come from looking at your love’s sweet, smiling glance,
Don’t search in darkest corners, you’ll never find it there,
The light that shines from heaven, will take away your care.
