#8 bell hooks

snow-covered earth
such silence
still divine presence
echoes immortal migrants
all life sustained
darkness comes
suffering touches us
again and again
there is pain
there in the midst
of such harsh barrenness
a cardinal framed in the glass
red light
calling away despair
eternal promise
everything changes and ends
