days of this sort of snow
begin purple to blue and grey out
to black and white.
the light is flat
but that doesn't mean 
the world is.
it's a game
winter plays 
on your eyes and your mind.
you have to work hard
to love it, most folks are tired
tired tired tired tired
of winter now.
not me.

 i'm listening
and watching
and still skiing some 
and little spring fed brooks 
like this one
chuckle and sing.

Ahhh, but what a fresh coat of snow will do for one's spirit! I guess one needs to be a winter person, though.

I've been quite enjoying the quiet snowfall today... not accumulating much, gray and overcast and just the thing for getting some cleaning and organizing done inside.

cannot quite imagine a white landscape for sooo long. in utah it was white for a bit and then melted back to brown. the mountains were white tho and beautiful, beautiful to look out to and the sky was as blue as it is here at home. the grey part would be difficult i think for one with an addiction to blue sky and sunshine.
you find the beauty so well velma

india, yes, it's amazing
valerie, a little bit every day lately, keeps the ground well nourished and skiing good
roz, yes, sometimes the lack of blue skies is hard, we northerners think it makes us tough. HAH! sometimes we get blue blue and lots of snow and usually then it's really cold!

--I can almost hear you chuckling and singing BUT I can't believe we live on the same continent. I have just come in from 3 hours of garden clean-up!

Velma Bolyard said...

jean, it's a BIG continent! i could have done that...and removed 7 tons of snow!

have always wanted to live near water, for the sound, such a beautiful weird world we live in. we had our door open to sunshine today!

the chuckling brooks bring me through!

Velma Bolyard said...

chuckle is such an appropriate word for their voices--

V- love the sketch marks that the twigs and branches appear to make in the blue snow. Brilliant. B
