Snow woke us from our slumber,
open windows to a clement January eve,
more arrived beyond the foretold flurry.
We cannot contain you in prediction
or in fact, no matter our persistence.
MotherFather, Elder Brother, Sister Bride,

You do not reside in books or buildings,
altar tables, cups,
images hung encrusted in gold,
flowing robes of rules.

but only for the privileged who agree.
MotherFather, Elder Brother, Sister Bride
You are bigger than what we may design.
Within myself, cathedral, forest glen,
Infinitity, there you reside,
MotherFather, Elder Brother, Sister Bride.

Kynan: One man’s flurry is another man’s winter blizzard Juno.
Michael: It flurried on my happy ass last night, I had fallen asleep reading and was awoken by the snow blasting in the window I left open….
