First Snowfall

Brilliance of flash on falling snow
(Click for larger version in new window)

First season's snowfall on a hushed world;
Chill wind bites through my sandals' open toes.
The peace of air sift through by glit'ring white
Speaks full of all that God proclaims to us:

"Now cease to strive, and know that I am God1
I send the snow to all, both right and fell2.
But here—sit still, seek me3, my voice4, my call5;
For have I not to you bequeathed my all6?"

1 Psalm 46:10
2 Matt 5:45
3 Luke 11:9-10, Heb 11:6
4 1 Kings 19:11-12, Psalm 29:4
5 1 Cor 1:9, Rom 8:28
6 Rev 21:6-7, 1 Pet 1:3-4
