The thickness of the snow shows me the lightness of Soul.

  I recall many miles trekking

through the snow and ice to feed the livestock.

Bundled up against the -40 degree weather (in Northern Alberta, Canada)

I was so heavily clothed I could barely walk.

  I loved the animals. I fed them.  Sang to them and gave them love.

Marching back to the cabin

(with the fresh chop in the five gallon pails

to heat in the  dugout water on the wood cook stove)

I welcomed the fire within.

 Now, that I am all citified,

I watch the pretty snowflakes

as they fall around the cars, the yard and the trees.  

Welcomed by the fire within.

(I  smile as it has been snowing for two days

and shows no signs of stopping.)

 This is the time of the deep inner work of spirit.

 This is the winter time.

A time  for the cleansing

and listening to roaring of the holy fire within.

 I turn to the inner as I pull the blanket

over my lap and sing in my “ rockin-rocking chair“. 

Welcomed by the fire within.
