Blustery winds emit long plaintive cries
during the night as snow swirls across the
landscape. Mother Nature boasts her
strength once again. Chilly arctic air.
The critters have scurried for shelter.
Left behind a bevy of tracks in the sn0w.
Within earshot, thumps and bumps rouse
the sleeper. Check in the morning!
What awaits at first light? The doormat
flew away into the garden. One winter,
the doormat encountered a neighbor’s
yard. Returned to us the next spring.
Behold the wonder of wonders!
gentle white snows float over the
landscape. A veritable blanket.
Frosty below zero wind chills await.
These are the times to bake a
pie. Sit in front of the roaring
fire in the fireplace. Contentment.
Love my four seasons. Gratified.
