|Eagle Lake, Morehead, KY, January 2013, on the campus of Morehead State University|
on this chilly January morn
look so cold, so forlorn.
Gray skies dip ever so low
left from yesterday's dusting of snow.
Yet in the heart of each tree
waiting for each who wait to see
new life as warm sun and breeze will blow,
like magic, unlock springs sap to flow,
buds, new leaves, then blooms will grow.

I hope to someday see this lake in autumn splendor, dressed in red, orange and gold. The beauty is there in all seasons - whether in monochromatic winter or electric-blue summer skies.
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we only will tune in.
