Winter Hope

Linda Barrett

Gray skies overhead
Melting snow exposes
Dirty mounds and fog
Parking lotís wet aphsalt
reveals garbage can contents
lying flat against it
resembling dead hideous sea creatures
Trees on the hill
Flowers in pots in the Giantís entrance
once green and lively
turn various shades of rust
SEPTA trains in Roslyn Station
wail dinosaur death cries
Above the skies over Susquehanna Road,
clouds part for a moment
allow a rainbow to stretch
across the skyís open dome
reveal Godís loving promise
in its multicolored arch
that even in sad times
He comforts us.
