Winter Blew In
Winter blew in with gusts of white,
swallowing whole everything in sight.
Twigs and branches with icicles hung,
drifted dunes from which silence is sung.
So let’s welcome the season on this Solstice Day,
put on your boots, and come out and play!

This is a delayed poem celebrating the Winter Solstice as winter took several weeks to show itself. Winter finally started here around the New Year with cold temps, frost, snow and ice. The sparkles of ice from frost in the garden, even in winter, is spectacular. And the icicles that form with the snow melt, paint such a wintry picture to welcome the solstice.

Special Note: The pictures here represent ice hanging from the house, and icy-frosty pictures of the garden with icicles hanging on trees.
I leave you with a few additional words about the Solstice and winter ice. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
