The joy of winter

Snow hiding autumn’s glory,

Waiting for spring time.

Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii)

Ode to the first snow.

Sunlight falls on snow

Laden trees drifting quietly

To the ground.

Lazy Saturday,

Reading, weaving, and cooking,

Listening for you.


In my retirement, I am amazed at how little time there is. I am consciously working to include and make time spent with family, especially my husband, special.

I walk with head phones,

Listening to my stories.

Do I fear silence?


I just finished listening to a podcast from On Being by Krista Tippett. I recommend this site and this episode in particular “Gordon Hempton – Silence and the Presence of Everything”. The link is below.

An ode to the end of day light savings.

Rain, again today,

Yellow leaves float like snowflakes,

In awhile, time shifts.
