Winter

Dawn

I put on the day
like a prayer shawl
and count my beads
of gratitude.

We had our first fall of snow, and everything is so beautiful outside, I can only repeat these words, written a few years back on a similarly snowy morning, to describe the way the beauty makes me feel.



Happy Winter, everyone!

  2. Snow is so quiet, I had no idea we had more of it until I tried to open the back door to let Lindy out. But it certainly is beautiful, and the paving crew can't work in it, so I'm grateful for the quiet.
    Luv, K

  10. It doesn't snow where I live. And looking at those gorgeous pictures of a snow-covered landscape, I feel desperate to be there. Also love the beautiful, poetic line accompanying the pics. :P

  12. Hey Sherry--thanks for your kind words-- and what pics and poem--beautiful and wise. We have had a very beautiful snow here--I did not take many pics as my phone/camera kept dying in the cold--but it was just stunning--and yours looks amazing too--it is a beautiful time of year, I find. Thanks. k.

  13. So gorgeous Sherry. Thank you for the pictures. I appreciate snow in pictures more than in real life. I don't like the cold. But the beauty is breathtaking. I like your short poem - it says it all.
