Brrr it’s cold

December 12, 2013

The cold, frosty week has chilled me to the bone and got me thinking . . .

. . . how monochromatic the earth remains beyond naked tree limbs

before the rains come and the field grasses grow;

. . . how glad I don’t live in snow country

yet yearn to photograph the beauty it holds;

. . . how shrubs and trees store sugar all winter long

for hues shiny and sweet come springtime;

. . . how loud are icy grass blades when walked upon

or how musical are the drips of melting frost;

. . . how quiet and secluded squirrels remain,

and unproductive laying hens reside,

. . . how the effort to stay warm seems like combat;

. . . and how all living breeds navigate cycles through

slumber and wake.
