Into the Promise

Into the Promise

We go hand in hand and we need
Nakedness and cold water to awaken us.
It comes down from the mountain
Where it lies through the winter as snow.

In spring it flows with the promise
Of waiting and we go down to the river
To meet it. Together we will dive
Into the new spring as it begins

Bringing life to life once more. And we’ll swim
In the promise of warmer days to come.
And the green of life breaking free
To bloom and grow around us once again.

As the snows retreat back up the hills
To lie in wait for winter, while we dance
Through the spring and deep into
The warm heart of summer heat

That takes us in its arms and holds us,
Until the autumn of our year takes our hands
And leads us off into the winter darkness
To sleep and dream of when spring returns.
