Beyond the Rainbow: Cardinal

"We are on a journey to where we are." -- Alan Watts


The land breathes mists

of brown and gray

Life has withdrawn

into itself.

Its pulse barely palpable,

it sleeps.

But there, a flicker

there, a lilting cry

Birds sit on branches high.

They are winter's blossoms

there to remind

that even in bleakness

Joy sings.
