On the first day of the New Year, we bring you the words of Two Roads author Lea Carpenter about family, loss and hope. Have a great 2014, filled with love and light.

Christmas is about family; this is my little one, looking like a snowflake.

Christmas is also about loss. Mark Strand’s poem catches family and loss and hope, too. It has been on my desk through many blizzards.


A Piece Of The Storm

From the shadow of domes in the city of domes,

A snowflake, a blizzard of one, weightless, entered your room

And made its way to the arm of the chair where you, looking up

From your book, saw it the moment it landed.

That’s all There was to it. No more than a solemn waking

To brevity, to the lifting and falling away of attention, swiftly,

A time between times, a flowerless funeral. No more than that

Except for the feeling that this piece of the storm,

Which turned into nothing before your eyes, would come back,

That someone years hence, sitting as you are now, might say:

“It’s time. The air is ready. The sky has an opening.”

Lea Carpenter’s debut novel, Eleven Days, was published this year and will be available in paperback in spring 2014.
