The cold wind winds its way into my soul,
as winter boldly announces its arrival.
Bare tree branches point upward toward the heavens,
crying out for the warmth of the sun.
Snow covers the ground in a beautiful blanket of hushed white.
So quiet, so calm, so isolating.
After the storm, the sun breaks through, warming my face.
The melting snow seeps slowly into the sweet earth.
Snow, cold yet beautiful, provides moisture for the life to come
A thought of Spring warms my heart, and then I see.
We all have winter in our lives.
Winter that turns to Spring.
