In the darkness that surrounds me--a poem

CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on life and faith for the years of winter…

In the darkness that surrounds
me, in the cold that fills
my bones, I call the names
of friends from days gone by

Uncles who were playmates
Grandfather I never knew
Boys who longed for fame
as we played the Hoosier
game, men who shared
their rations in the trenches
of this life

We hold the common cup
of memory, hope, and death
as we sit as one and wait
for the sun to rise


I tweet as yooper1721
