I was born and raised in northern Minnesota. Here there are no oceans, only small islands of water we call lakes. The waves pound the shorelines in the warmer months for all kinds of fun. But eventually every year comes the winter in all her strength to cover the waters in ice and snow. I think of this season as our winter-tide. The pull of gravity upon the waters of our souls during the days when we are forced inside by the ice and the absence of heat. So much is covered by it here, our lakes, our driveways, and our emotions. Whence comes the thaw and the spring melt? -ecb


In the winter-tide
i heard you crying in your sleep
i could not bear to stand aside and watch you weep
~in the winter-tide wells all run dry
in the winter-tide wells all run dry
cast your cares aside
in the waning light
we could not bare to realize all who stand upon the right
~in the winter-tide wells all run dry
in the winter-tide wells all run dry
