A blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume.

Within a moment in time
Feeling the miles that separate us
Fleeting pictures of you in my mind
Wishing for the time to go by
The thought of your touch
A dream of your kiss
Looking upon the face of my angel
Your voice calling out my name in passion
So many images run through my head
As I wrap myself on this cold winter night
Dreaming the dream that is my one true love
To be back in your arms
For the rest of our days
All these thoughts of you run through my soul
As I sit here under a blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume
Swirling in my head.

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.

Random Quote of Mine

The other night I was texting with my lovely beautiful wife and she asked me if I was bored. I am currently staying in a room that I would say is heat challenged. So my reply to her was;

“Pretty much!  Shivering in the cold only keeps you entertained for so long”

I was bundled up in warm clothes under the covers in my bed. Got to love the Army. I have had to deal with worse. Sleeping in a tent in Korea in the middle of winter. Being in the middle of the Iraq desert in the middle of winter and growing up in Wisconsin, I have had to deal with cold weather. I’m currently in Louisiana and you would figure it might be a little warmer. NOT! Hope you all have a warm and wonderful day.

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

Winter

man-breathing-in-cold-air

Cold bites at my face

Burning my skin in its embrace

Vapors rise from between my lips

Rising into the emptiness

Winds bring a harsh cold

Sending a chill deep into soul

A frosty wonderland

Blasting into me where I stand

Skies shown in a deep blue

A sharp crispness comes into view

Wishing that summer was here soon

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.
