Mid-Week Question to Consider~January 19

What if we remember that we never walk alone in our seasons of winter?

Winter

It’s cold this time of year
and wet
like the bottom of a lake
no hope
of drying out

it’s tempting
to stay near stoves
and armchairs

but we must walk
out into the cold
mouth of winter

it is unsparing
but it is
alive.
