Beauty of Winter


There’s a dismal solitude that arrives with the first day of winter

Flowers wilt

Skies are left silent

Trees lose their color

But there can be beauty

In the vibrant blue above a fresh blanket of snow

Sunlight glimmering off fair mountains

The luminescent shimmer of holiday lights

Powdered branches

The scent of cocoa

The feeling of a fleece blanket lying over your lap

When I see beauty in winter

I’m reminded of warmth

Promises of sunlight

A dash of vibrant hues

A reminder of spring

For me the beauty of winter

is shown in fragments

of seasons that have passed

and ones not far away
