The First Breath of Winter

First comes cold with winter's snow
To make a mess and cause distress
But spring will bring much to behold.
Have patience now for that caress.

Linked to Cosmic Photo Challenge where Dale offers the theme of “the first breath of winter”. These photos were from last year’s first snowfall which melted quickly but left a lot of snow. We might get a repeat this coming week.

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. The forest preserve provided many smiles. I also went to parts of the preserve I had not visited in decades. I was surprised I could remember the trails after such a long time.

Another smile arrived this morning when I saw a story of mine, “Patience”, in Whispers and Echoes. I am grateful to Sammi Cox for accepting it.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. I enjoy the parts of winter when it’s warmer and the snow feels pliable enough to make a snowman. Good point that we shouldn’t wish our lives away, but live every day well. Thank you, Robbie.

      1. I do remember getting up in the morning to a snowy white blanket of snow. Dawn would be the perfect time for this suburban mother/housewife to walk out and enjoy it before the deep cold temps would come rustling in with a vengeance. Stay Safe … Isadora 😎
