WAITING

The sun turns to gloom. Snow brightness gone. Brown touching the ground. Squirrels looking for food. In the distance I hear the trucks driving down the road. No one out, dogs barking from afar. A loneliness creeps over me as the world stands still, waiting for a brighter time to come. Isn’t it odd how our moods can be affected by the weather? Inside I carry on with the day. No one talking. Outside my windows fat sparrows sitting on roof tops. On a tree near by I see several cardinals. What are they waiting for? The same thing as me? We are all God’s creatures, the birds and us. God takes us under his wings and gives us days like this so we can appreciate the sunnier days to come. terry shepherd
