This poem was also written in late fall 2011. As the seasons change, I observe the subtle and not so subtle shifts in nature. Winter has some of the most stunning and colorful sunsets and sunrises. The pictures here are of the sunset seen from my garden as autumn shifted to winter.

This poem was originally shared on my garden blog, Gardens Eye View, on January 6th, 2014 soon after the Winter Solstice and New Year. With the darkness receding as winter began, I wanted to celebrate the light. The light lost and found again through the seasons and through my life over the past few years. It was this following of the light that helped keep me going through the dark times in my life.
I thought it would be appropriate to share my thoughts on winter again as we approach the new Winter Solstice and the coming of the light. Where autumn comes out of its darkness and we follow the light to spring.

If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. I hope to more overtly spread some blog love through both my blogs in the future.
Special Note: The pictures here are from last winter as I watched the snow play on the landscape and sparkle especially in the early morning light.
