Reflections on Winter
Bare branches reach towards the darkened sky
Like gnarled fingers worn by years gone by.
Breath takes form the eyes can see
Like a part of our spirit is set to wander free.
And cloudless skies frame stars so bright
As the moon rises into sight.
A veil of magic settles on the soul
When such beauty does unfold.
And even though the chill creeps in
We stop and breathe the beauty of winter within.
