Deep wells in snow
where faithful collapse
onto knees to observe the light
emerges this life eternal
amid night’s teardrop
prayerful stars
a choir of hope
in the thin frost air
a scent of salvation
senses piqued
the Spirit
now a given
faith implies
no doubt
hearts sing
a cappella
the melody
of existence
each of us
a lyric
mesmerized tones
