Snow Comes

Snow comes
falling down 
covering all that’s wrong 

In the spring 
We’ll see the flaws 
Resurrecting  goodness 
Starting deep
Underneath it all  

Rising to
Summer’s radiating warmth 
Onto falling fall

Where fruition
Will be the harvest seen 
As things die
In the late
Passing fall 

Then once again
We’ll be beneath 
Winter’s cold, cold snow 
Covering all.

First Snowfall Brings Brightness And Clarity

First Snowfall Brings Brightness And Clarity ~ Photo by Patrice

First snowfall brings
Brightness and clarity to my life 
Looking at things covered in white 
Sleeping now
Thru the winter night. 

To awaken
All new, fresh and bright 
Once spring’s breezes melt 
Winter’s white. 

For now I see oh so clearly 
What the universe wants me to know 
I’m part of all life,
All seasons
Spring, summer, fall
Especially winter’s white snowfall.

Winter Winds Blow

Like winter winds that blow 
Our lives can be tossed
To and fro. 

So grasp with vigour and hold on so tight 
To live thru your winter and bask once again 
A summer’s delight.

Leaves Falling

Leaves falling
Leaving all the ground
A quiet sound. 

Stirring leaves 
Here and there 
Falling from branches 
Now left bare. 

Thru the winter
All quietens down 
Passing storms bring
The only sound 
Branches cracking 
Blowing down. 

In the spring
Life will come 
Bright and warm
Into summer’s sun.

Full circle in the fall
Once again
We’ll see
Leaves fall.

Leaves Turn Brown

September 16, 2021
Last used Sept. 16/21

The leaves turn brown from green 
Last gasp of summer it seems 
Leaving it’s presence on the ground 
No more to be
Til the harsh winds of winter blow 
And bring
A pleasant, delightful renewing spring.

A Leaf Falls

October 27, 2020

A Leaf Falls ~ Photo by Patrice

A leaf falls
it’s life has come to a end
dropping down amongst other leaves
on a dead, barren ground.

A leaf falls
before air is awful cold
with frost foretelling things to come
darkness, winter, frozen bitter cold all day
then at night.

A leaf falls
it doesn’t care about the cold
it’s life has lived in warmth, breezes moist
hot atmosphere and now

A leaf falls
a life lived in full circle
from spring to early winter long.

A Bluejay Came Looking

September 6, 2016

Winter Bluejay ~ Photo by Patrice

A bluejay came looking
For a feeder today
Seeing whether one
Was on display
Silent and quiet
Not a word did he say
Just looking
To see if a feeder was up
Fast food for the winter
He was looking
Checking today.

The Sun Shines Bright

November 18, 2014

Winter's Lane ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
As the wind blows quiet like
The atmosphere breathes a restful breath
Eyes closed in winter rest.

Let me take it in
Feel warmth following the light
To a time when the sun shines
Even in the evening night.

Rain, Pouring Rain

September 16, 2014

Spring Rain ~ Photo by Patrice

Rain, pouring rain, cold, colder still
Chills falling, falling down again
Winter’s come, pass the fall
Summer’s gone, we’ve missed it all.

One thing we can do
Is pray for spring, feel the dew
Then summer’s warmth will arrive
Holding us, in her arms once again.

Soft And Fluffy White

November 25, 2013

Snow Storm ~ photo by Patrice

Soft and fluffy white
Settling, blowing light
Blows across fields buried
In white snow.

A caw sounds the sound
That winter’s come
It’s all around
Listen, listen to that sound.
