Contemplating Winter

Winter Contemplation
by Mauverneen

Snowy Lonesome

There is quiet beauty in the starkness of a winter landscape

Just the basics; the bones, as it were - like the bareness of an open soulIn unadorned simplicity

Lacking nature’s accessories of leaves, flowers, color

And on the snow, a splash of red in a lingering leaf or a bird at the feeder

Shades of gray fade to color once more when the sun returns, vibrant and nurturing

Meantime stay inside, stay warm, refresh

Drink soup and tea and hot cocoa and dream your dreams

Long and Lonely Highway

The backyard

Prairie Barn

A splash of  Red
