In One Moment Of Purity.

Updated on January 2, 2013

When all the world is blanketed in perfection.

Sunrise | Source

At the crack of dawn

where I stand wedged

in warm boots,

snug jacket and gloves,

on a cold winter day,

I can see only purity.....

stretched out before me

like the New Year

freshly fallen.

All of the flaws of

man against nature

buried in clean sheets of white

like poetry not yet written.

Would that it could be so easy

to erase the mar of man's follies,

that taint our world.

Blackened souls filled with

the crystal white of a fresh start.

All that led us to darkness frozen

and then melted in grateful tears

under the warm love

of the sun of God.

the Son of God.....

Somewhere miles

from my morning post

on my deck that floats

high above sterile white,

near a Sandy Hook that is left

anything but tropical

lie twenty mounds

that blanket innocence.

Near six more mounds that

shroud those who sought

and died to protect it.

All of the horror buried

beneath natures cleansing

in a most chilling way.......

And so I pray that come

the Spring thaw

we will have found a way

to honor these fallen

with letters and bulletins...

....less the bullets.

In a blizzard of demands

to our leaders

to establish the security

badly needed

on all campuses

and school grounds

to prevent any more

mounds of white

come the next snow fall...

We must never forget

"The 20 that fell in the 12th year "

of a new century.....

It is a bookmark of tragedy

we must return to often

until the story left unfinished

is rewritten happily ever after.

For all the children

who still face the threat

of souls so dark

that even nature itself

cannot purify

their hideous flaws.

I turn to go in

my body numb

from a sudden chill

that is not snow,

when I bump into my own son

who wonders at the frozen tear

that mars my cheek.

But I just embrace him

and tell him I love him,

as he gets ready for me

to drop him off at school

to face another year

of what I hope will be

as pure as the driven snow

I have just abandoned.

Peace to you and yours in this New Year.....

with a lessening sorrow for all our tomorrows

as we as parents make apparent our demands

for a secured and safe environment for our

precious children to be schooled at.
