While this election draws forward…

As dawn broke in the morning studio
in the ballot counting state of Pennsylvania
I was organizing the holiday cookie tins
and saw from my kitchen window,

a lone eagle
flying proudly over the log cabin
and sailing on above the creek

It took my breath away.
The breath that I have been holding
for four years.

I’m once again looking forward
to baking holiday cookies
putting new batteries in the window candles
settling in at the studio easel
for a long winter…

of our peace filled content.

It is always powerful
on this day each year
to listen to the journalists at NPR
read the Declaration of Independence

This year it gave me chills.
