Advent Hiaku

In a season of fullness,

to scale back requires work and faith;

freedom to fully see.

I couldn’t see these beauties until I looked closely and cleared away all else.

I wrote this Advent Hiaku last year as part of an online course through Abbey of the Arts. It speaks to me now as much as it did then as I embrace the paradoxes of the season and prepare my heart for all that this season will bring.
