Winter’s Contemplation

Spring works underground,
prepares meticulously for
her coming-out party in green.

Old Man Winter kicks back to relax,
hushes now with no rush as
pure white drapes quieted landscapes
and surrounds the world as marvelous,
magical, mystical, majestical grounds.

He reclines, wholly-satisfied,
stirs not on this December day,
never unsettling the silent sound.

    What a delightful and clever characterization of “Ole Man Winter”. I really feel and visualize this scene and setting. Thanks so much for sharing this. I really enjoyed it!!

    My Best
