“… snow falling anywhere, any time, is a wonder.” Mary Oliver

What I do to save myself

is to look for god in every fold

though I never call it god when i find it.

When I find it, I name it wonder or beauty

or love or kindness or gratitude.

Outside snow sits in a sky called wait

and all I can think is

My god, it’s so warm out tonight.

How lucky to have to take out the trash.

Inside, the storm doesn’t wait,

it dumps and forces delays.

You will miss your connection,

the busy mind fusses. The body

submits, finds a comfortable chair

scans an old newspaper, rereads and

rereads the same article,

and rechecks the monitors to see

if there’s progress.

Any storm is a wonder,

another way god might say,

What is it you think you must have so desperately,

and just where did you think you needed to go.

And within the din of impediment, the heart

hears the silver of delicate bells

and grows wings of its own

so that regardless of conditions

it will arrive in time for the dance.

Through sleet and into the wind hear it sing

Thank you, thank you for one more day.
