Winter Moment

We who live in the north

Know winter can be harsh

p1070204

With that cold wind

A sun that never  reaches

High in the sky

p1060746

Yet it has its’ moments

In the quietness of a new snows’ fall

p1070191

Or as the sun returns to a new day

To shine on the beauty of winter

If only for a short time

It is nice to dream of traveling the world

In search breathtaking sites

Yet most of us, it is just a dream

So to wander local

To see the beauty close to home

It is what  most of us can do

Sometimes just minutes away

For there is always something new  and beautiful to see

For me a visit to the river and one of my favorite native trees

The black gum tree – Nyssa sylvatica
