remember when the ice blew our hair cold
and the shadows our hands made looked like
skeletons on the rubber floor? that was not
so long ago. but do you remember before that,
before all this, before we knew what was below
we were children and we’d pray for snow and
when we’d awake to see it we would take in the whole world and gasp and grin?
and remember what it tasted like? the snow?
it wasn’t as cold as i thought it would be, it was
fluffy and crunchy all at once! and i thought
i’d never tasted something so
wonderful and tasteless.
Video I made for Church Hill Activities & Tutoring. Loving the black & white portraiture of the students. Comments are adapted from students answers to the prompt: “What is God’s favorite thing about you?” Scripture at the beginning and end of video quoted from Isaiah 43. Song is Crags and Clay by Gungor. Photography done by Michael & me.
