Fool's Gold

The setting sun
paints the sky with gold
bathing everything
in a delicious
golden glow.

Fool's gold,
but I'll take it.

Helps me forget
it's still

Winter's Bite

Winter has been gnashing its teeth at us!

Wherever the icy rains land
they stick
and freeze mid-action,
creating beautiful, frozen statues.

Branches groan under the weight of their heavy cloak
and power lines crack and fall,
leaving many people without electricity.

So, we create a light of our own,
with stories and games,
laughter and patience.

(The power outage only lasted 26 hours for us.
So all is well, no need for anyone to worry.)

Happy New Year

Write it on your heart
that every day
is the best day
of the year.

Use Your Imagination

The colour of springtime is in the flowers;
The colour of winter is in the imagination.

Everything presses in on you all at once
The blinding whiteness
The silence
The cold
But mostly...
The overwhelming awe of all that snow

What a remarkable quirk of nature

Perennial Beauty

The tall grasses I see on my daily walk
must be the most photographed
plants on my blog.

I can't seem to get enough of their beauty.
