Going to the Mountains in Winter Brings Peace

We hiked up to our cabin this past weekend.
Our busy lives had trapped us
in the valley smog for too long.
Deep snow packed roads left us
to hike alone  
for miles
through frosted trees
and rolling hills 
vast vistas of frozen water 
sparkling like millions of diamonds
in the morning sun.
What I enjoyed most was . . . stillness.
Few venture into the mountains
when all is white.
For those who brave the cold and ice
 comes a quiet whisper . . .  
trust God
with all the seaons
of your life
all that seems wrong 
will someday yield to spring.
But for now . . .
and feel at peace.
