Sitting on the couch, my furry friends soft breath reassuring,
The snow falling outside, his head resting on my leg, soft eyes looking for confirmation.
Like every snowflake, each glance is unique, telling a story.
As the snow settles on the earth, it won’t move, much like my furry friend.
“Snow falling soundlessly in the middle of the night will always fill my heart with sweet clarity.”
Looking out of my jeep. 22 degrees with a fresh snowfall waiting for the snow to melt so I can head to work!
“I think snow is so evocative and has such a powerful atmosphere.”
“A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder.”
“Each solstice is a domain of experience unto itself. At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.”
Stands before me,
Untouched and pristine,
The soft virgin snow waits
As the flakes fall, innocent
And silent, singing a song of
Wonderment and love, asking for
Nothing but tranquility,
The scene, full of beauty,
Only to be one,
In the soft
“A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky—unbidden—and seems like a thing of wonder.”
“A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things.”
— George R.R. Martin

Cold winds and grey skies,
The throes and woes of winter,
Today, the calm before the storm.
Still, the black lab walks the frozen earth,
Nose raised in anticipation,
