ginger in the snow


IMG_3583who knows how many

pictures of you I’ve taken

how many times we’ve walked

down our street — in sun

and snow — on our way


to coffee and conversation

yet you still steal my heart

in the simplest of ways

the singlest of frames

the hope and ache


of a lifetime caught

in this crystal moment

and me right behind you

out in the storm and

on our way to everything





P. S. — There’s a new recipe.


  1. Ginger is one of my favorites. Spices and names. I worked once for a very special interim pastor named Ginger and she changed my heart and life. When I make my own ginger cookies, I often use three kinds of ginger (if I have them all) plus black pepper. I do think the most interesting and happy heat comes from the fresh ginger. If your love is anything like THAT, you’re so blessed. Happy day.
