Winter Dreams



~~~

Leaves fall like flakes of gold and bronze

Tumbling through the cool autumn air

To hush the footsteps on forest carpet

That awaits winter’s bridal gown white

~~~

The trees whisper into the north wind

Of the warmth of summer days and rain

Another ring on the finger of recorded life

That speaks in tongues of seasons past

~~~

The trail meanders like a brown ribbon

Through elms and pines born years ago

Where the world beyond was a different place

But here, it is only time that has passed

~~~

Both flora and fauna prepare for sleep

To slumber away winter’s cold grasp

With dreams full of all the vivid colors

That are needed for the coming spring

~~~

  4. I may grumble about hot and cold seasons, but I would not want to live in a place where I cannot see the beauty that each changing season brings! Thank you for a lovely reminder of what is coming just around the corner!

  5. Beautiful! Made me think of freezing winter mornings, and the bliss of being wrapped in a quilt in those temperatures 🙂
