Thursday Poem - Containing Winter

make of this bitter winter day,
a container wild and sweet —
like a chalice carved in old wood

gift it with a song, one
woven of wind and tumbling snow —
breathe vibrant life within

hold it, oh so gently,
fluttering warm there in your hand —
then set it free to soar aloft

bow deeply to the light,
and embrace what it is telling you —
this is all there is
