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.
