Almost bare

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                                    

The tree is almost bare now; only a handful of yellow leaves remain.

The sun hugs branches it hasn't seen for a long time.

I am not yet so open in my prayer.

A woodpecker works the bare limbs and I am given hope to go on.

Clear as a low pressure front pushes desires and regrets downwind and the world before us appears, glorious in detail, present and divine.
