.. winter solitude ..

They say that things just cannot grow
Beneath the winter snow,
Or so I have been told.
They say were buried far,
Just like a distant star
I simply cannot hold.
Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?
This is my winter song.
December never felt so wrong,
‘Cause you’re not where you belong;
Inside my arms.

Winter solitude–
in a world of one color
the sound of wind.
~ Matsuo Basho

.. cause it’s all we know ..

“It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. 
It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal,
and that every path may lead to peace.”      – Agnes M. Pharo

arcade blog 122617a

I believe that we need to find peace within ourselves before we can find a peaceful world around us. We all want world peace but we fight each other’s ideals and thoughts and desires. We think that by stating our opinions against those in control, change will come and we will be at peace. Change will come, but peace requires so much more.

As we move through the holidays towards the new year, I find the above quote from Agnes Pharo even more poignant. We should wish for this every day for everyone and in every year. And we should probably carry courage AND hope into tomorrow as in these days, it could take both to find the peace we need.

Control what you can…if you have a peaceful heart and you live courageously and with hope… you might find yourself to be a strong person that can bring change, to be a leader towards the better, to be a warm beacon in the field of cold. Will you try?
