Into Winter

Backwards we fall in
With days short and nights longer
Winter’s scene is set

Chill welcomes the day
A sign we approach year’s end
With frozen dew drops

Rosy cheeks and things
Visible signs of breathing
And dash to get warm

Time waits for no-one
As another cycle ends
Spring is standing by

  1. Those are gorgeous photos, Tom. We’re just having a backwards step into winter weather from being in mid 30’s to under 20 last two days, and raining. It will be very hot soon enough.

  2. Winter hasn’t made its way to my area yet. We’re getting a few nippy days but nothing of any consequence. I enjoy winter as long as it is mild, which most winters are mild in my area. Nice piece, Tom.
