I Felt the Sun Today

Brisk wind arrives outside my window

Each gust plucks another leaf from the familiar

Put away what is gone;

Prepare for the new

The chill of winter stretches on.


But I felt the sun today


Its quiet filled the room of my children playing,

And its chorus rang from the mouths of saints beside.


Its hello beamed across a table of new faces

And its warmth whispered relief to my broken frame.


I heard it in I’m sorry.

I received it in a hug.


I felt the sun today


And I chased my kids beneath its rays.

Bare branches giggled at their gift

And I realized that it had never really left.
