Favorite Quote:
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people merely exist, that is all." -Oscar Wilde


Swirling leaves
blown away
leaving behind the trees,
now bare and shivering from the
howling winds.

Biting cold
chilling your every bone.
Frozen waters
glistening in the sunlight,
creating a perfect picture
against the winter sky.

Snow falls
softly to the ground;
the flakes performing a
perfectly rehearsed ballet.
Children, joyful children,
laughing and playing in their
down coats and caps and gloves.

Evergreens dusted
with winters white wishes
for cleansing, for a new beginning.
Fireplaces ablaze,
warming cold fingers and toes
frozen by Jack Frost.

Winter brings
many joys and leaves behind a
fresh slate.
The earth longs for winter
where it finds rest
under layers of snow and ice,
but again the
leaves with grow,
the flowers will bloom,
and the animals will arise from their slumbers.

Spring will bring
sweet smells
and warm weather; it rides
on the wings of the sparrows
returning to their home
after a tiresome race from winter.
