‘Tis That Time of Year

We are one day past the solstice.
The year’s darkest corner has been turned
and I can feel my spirits lift.

Fresh snow fell this week
and in the woods
silence hangs thick upon the branches.

Sol plays hide-and-seek behind the trees
then suddenly flashes green and red.
Mother Nature’s Christmas card.

  1. What an interesting phenomenon. Do you know what caused it? I can think of several explanations, including in-the-spirit-of-the-season elves. However it happened, it’s delightful, and makes a perfect Christmas card. Poinsettias are nice, but this is special.


      1. I agree. Some days it’s hard to keep up with everything. I’d like to post more and follow more blogs but the 24-hour days somehow seems to shrink as we get older! “See you” in the new year. 🙂
