fall

The peace travels through the night
as the snow falls softly to the ground
Greeting the calm with its velvety light
landing so softly on face, tongue, hands
Falling and coming to meet the green grass
of solid earth changing the landscape
to a haunting white that does not let go
what is the trust of the fall
what treasure does it cover
soft fallen joy in the heart
Risk - do we step out on faith 
and come face to face with the mystery of You?
The mystery of life?  The mystery of ourselves?
Most of the time we are too busy
hiding in our self assuredness
believing we are in control
not realizing we are lost
when we admit we are
it is our first risk; we are not
in control and faith in Your goodness,
abundance, and love are all we have
scattered around us falling in grace.
