Yosemite in Winter
January by John Updike
The days are short
The sun a spark Hung thin between The dark and dark
Fat snowy footsteps Track the floor Milk bottles burst Outside the door
The river is A frozen place Held still beneath The trees of lace
The sky is low The wind is gray The radiator Purrs all day.

We Mourn the Loss of Lives

We mourn the loss of lives in the recent terror attack at Charlie Hebdo and the taking of hostages at a kosher supermarket, both incidents in Paris.  We pray for the victims and their families and for peace and tolerance in our increasingly fragile world.
