The Sun

Sun in winter slumber

Fills each day with gentle melancholy,

Soon awakens to Springs call

Bringing new life to freshen weary souls.

Where have you been hiding?

We have been waiting and watching

for your bright glow to cast out

the shadows of winter.

Welcome Back!

  2. Seeing your pictures, the following lines cam to my mind.

    “What is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.”

    From Leisure by William Henry Davies

    We need to be mindful of the present to notice the myriad and fascinating nuances of Nature on display around us, come winter, come spring.



  3. The only time I’ve been back east since we moved to California (1961) was back in late February 2003. The worst snow storm in 100 years was coming to an end when we landed for our U.S. History tour. I’ll never forget the beauty of snow on leafless trees, the white blanket on the White House lawn, and what it really means to be cold! I want to get back there to experience autumn.
