Winter Wonder

Winter lays her first blanket of pristine white
a comforter for next spring's miracles
a hush falls over the land
as all remain transfixed in awe
the shower of white individuality
enamors young and old
skis are waxed in anticipation
skates sharpened for the first opportunity
grills cleaned and stored away
mulch laid over bulbs planted below
wood piles grow higher in preparation
hearty soups and stews simmer once again
the popcorn tastes better by a roaring fire
than it did at the summer fair
cotton candy memories give way to anticipation
of making angels in the snow
turtle-neck sweaters and woolen mittens
hot cocoa and cinnamon toast
cozy comforters, flannel sheets, comfy blankets
brought out of storage
everything quiets and awaits
and we never tire of the wonder of it all

I am particularly appreciative of your poem, Marcia, as I do love the winter (most do not). You've captured the essence so wonderfully and all those homey feelings we get at this time of year. Lovely piece! ~Hugs, Elizabeth

Lovely write, Marcia. Winter is indeed on the way, and I'm sure here in eastern Canada we'll get walloped once again, but it really is a beautiful season. To me, all seasons are inspirational blessings!

Hugs,
Anna

Your lovely "Winter Wonder" poem gives appeal to coming winter. Sounds wonderful, especially since I woke up to low temperatures here this morning in North Florida.

I, for one, look forward to winter. I live in Texas; summers here are brutal, and as I get older, I find the heat bothers me more and more! Bring on the cold and the snow!!!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Wonderful poem, and I love the kitty!

SO, SO TRUE. EACH SEASON BRINGS ITS OWN SPECIAL, UNIQUE BEAUTY AND BLESSINGS. I AM GLAD THAT I LIVE IN THE TEMPERATE ZONE. I GET TO EXPERIENCE ALL FOUR SEASONS AND THUS, BESIDES BEING KEPT AND BLESSED EVERYDAY, I AM BLESSED 4 TIMES, EXTRA ESPECIALLY, DURING THE YEAR WITH THE ADVENT OF EACH NEW SEASON. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS GEM AND BLESSINGS. JOYCE - HIS INSPIRATIONS
