A New Fallen Snow

The wind blows briskly across the pasture
Trees swaying to and fro
A night made to avoid disaster
The moon above brings and enlightened glow
A chill in the air felt to the bone
Wrapping its self all around
A white cover over the trees has been sewn
As a new fallen snow covers the world

Woodland White

Upon the forest deep
Where the mountain becomes steep
A place where few attempts to go
Nature puts on its show
Trees so thick all around
You can barely hear a sound
Sunlight hidden away
When the wind blows all the trees together sway
Animals lurk upon the silent landscape
The darkness below cannot escape
Until that time the winds do change
A chill in the air does hang
Snow begins to fill its sight
Turning it all a woodland white.

Winter Wonderland

winter-677721_960_720

When I was a kid winter was a magical time of the year

Sledding, building forts, snow angels and so much more

A time to look forward to Christmas time and vacation

Looking forward to watching the snow fall

Heading outside to play till I was frozen to the bone

As I grew, the magic was replaced by just having fun

Snowball fights, skeetching behind the bus, and so much more

Getting our driver’s license and learning what fun it could be

Doing donuts in the snow, slide turns with the emergency brake

Going on ski trips, sledding until all hours in the dark

Adulthood hit and things began to change

The winter time was more of a pain

Driving to work, digging out the drive way and so much more

Yes there was times of fun

Playing with the kids, building snowmen and a few other things

What do I look forward to in winter now a days

I look forward to the first day of spring and the warmth it brings.

Snow

Flying across the sky

Caressing the air without a care

Gliding along on the currents above

Floating across the sea of the night

Gently sliding down to earth

A single snowflake leading the pack

Soon many more will follow its lead

Filling the air with the greatest of ease

Wind wiping them around flipping and falling

Soon the air is a filled all in white

The snow covering the ground like a blanket on a bed

Tucking in the grass for a long winters nap

A Walk Into 2017

Took a walk around our neighborhood on the first day of the year. Just had this urge to go out and take pictures. It was a beautiful winter day and thankfully not too cold. Well if you call upper 20’s not too cold. Just felt like doing something different to start the new year out. Pictures they say are worth a thousand words, well I don’t know about that always. I hope you enjoy a touch of winter. Happy New Year.
