When winter is all around you,
even if there is no snow,
you have to find the beauty.
You may have to search high,
you may have to search low.
On a recent, sunny winter day
I went out to the park.
Near the pond I could hear
the creek and groan of ice
that coated the green pond water.
Standing on the railroad car bridge
the morning breeze made me chill.
I long to see this view
on a lazy, warm summer day.

It’s a sunny, blue sky, beautiful winter day here. There is not much thawing going on, so lots of snow still covers the ground. There are huge mounds of it all over the place where snow plows have made way through the foot or so that we have accumulated here.
We came back to the house today and saw a group of squirrels making tunnels in all that white stuff, looking for food. Since our neighborhood is full of big, beautiful oak trees we kind of have a smorgasbord here for critters…acorns every where you step.
They can be fun to watch, and they are also a bother.
Now that I have seen them out playing and foraging, I only have one question….
What does it mean if a squirrel sees its shadow,
on February 15th?
Please let me know. Especially if it means anything about snow going away…..
Ice hanging from the sides of houses,
a foot of snow from multiple snow storms
and beautiful, lace-like frost
touching the smallest things
and bringing them into winter light.
Even though I’m ready for spring
I can still see the beauty of this winter season.
How about you?
How would you summarize winter in an image?
Walking in the park on a Sunday afternoon,
snow crunching under my feet,
my breathe visible in the air,
I found myself craving color, yearning for something different
than black and white.
Once I turned my attention to the colors of winter
I found fabulous colors in so many places….
Above, below, all around.
All I had to do was notice.
