january quickening

today’s walk 
through pasture grass
past the frozen pond

a disquieting

how astounding it is 
to be unbound

and then be found


“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”  Anne Frank

And He cried in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” The man that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him and let him go.”  John 11:43-44
