Winter Meditation

Winter Meditation

It was another walk in winter
In a park often visited by my loved one and me
I had expectations
I hoped clarity might come to my troubled soul
But nearing the end of my walk
With my expectations unfulfilled
I was sad.

Now I sit at a resting place
Listening to the sound of a woodpecker
And feeling a bit cold from the breeze
I realize the absence of a “clarity” not truly felt
Is in truth a gift.

The future is unknown
Striving to grasp it
Is a hindrance not a help.
Let it go.
May I trust that when the time is right
God will show me the way.
