swan lake


this afternoon’s snow globe flakes and steel gray water provided the perfect backdrop for a winter swan ballet…I wish you could have been there with me to experience this tranquil dance of snow and nature

Out of the bosom of the Air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
Descends the snow.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

the changing seasons

fall to winter…

bare branches prepare for the coming of old man winter…a brisk walk in the cool moist air reveals the glorious scent of pine and a neighbors wood burning fire…favorite wool sweaters and throws take center stage once again…and like old friends, they offer familiar warmth and comfort during this festive time of year…

Winter came down to our home one night

Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,

And we, we were children once again.
