Forgive the Winter

sullen and thick
the flathead winter sky imposes and dominates
flowing and filling from sky edge to mountain ridge
impenetrable as wet wool

but the hope
to see the blue
tries to live

just a glimpse

yet unrelenting and uncompromising
the montana winter denies

snow falls
and unsure salvation follows
a softer world is laid down

brilliant white and blue
crisp and renewed
hearts swell and minds lift
artificial boundaries dissolve

reprieve is granted
forgiveness is given
