Ice Age

Ice Age

~~~~~~~

Before the vernal equinox

my vision was blurred by ice

I could not foresee your touch

melting me and giving sight

I warmed myself with embers

from a fire not my own

that simply chilled me deeper

and flash froze me to the bone

Now numbed by icy spirits

I trudged through wild winter’s ways

blinded by whipping whiteouts

grasping things along the way

Howling winds of self-made gales

deafened me to songs of hope

until I suddenly sank

through an icy path that broke

You saw my futile thrashing

and hopelessness to survive

Your Sun of Spring then gave me

eyes to see and come alive.

My coming to faith/trust in Jesus Christ opened my eyes to the beauty in nature as if I had moved from a black and white planet to a full color one! My eyes didn’t see well when my heart was in an ice age…
