Golden light

glowing bright

hopeful sight

after longest night

Fire and Ice

 

In the morning as I rise

wiping the sleep from my eyes

I awake at the precise moment

 to witness

as fire and ice 

converge

Silent Sunday

 

My soul listens to the silence of snow falling

 

Frosty flakes descend from the heavens

floating gracefully to the earth

poetry in motion

covering all of nature in a fresh blanket of pure white

saying

hush now, be still, rest

 

My soul listens to the silence of snow falling

Sorry, I have no photo to share with this one today, just my words as I sip my coffee, watching (and listening to) the silent snow falling outside my window this Sunday morning…

Holiday Lights

 

Holiday lights

glow warmer 

on a wintry morning

when there’s snow

We put up our Christmas lights the other day, and although it looked quite festive when we turned them on that evening, I was feeling a bit disappointed about our lack of snow here.  But when I awoke the next morning, I found to my inner child’s delight that it had snowed during the night!  There’s something extra magical about snow at Christmas time! ❄

And the lights do glow warmer…
