The Magic of Winter

Thank you for bringing back this post.
many parts of the world have been severely affected by this winter, however, we have been very lucky in this part of the continent. We have had very nice weather so far.


Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.

~Bill Morgan, Jr.

This makes me think of the story of "The Snow Queen."

Thank you yoko for the lovely images and words.



“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Thank you, dear Yoko, for bringing this post back. I just went through the whole wonderful thread, enjoying the poems and the pictures. Such magic!

Merry Christmas to all.

Manifest peace now
within your heart and on Earth
love is meant to reign


Trees in their white dress
softly hum to winter's tune
filling hearts with peace



I composed this second one right here, inspired by all the images ... Smile

Love,
Margherita

Winter has been very strange here. We have had freezing rain instead of snow and a lot of trees were broken leaving many people without electricity and heat for many days.
Th snow is expected to return again, and I prefer this to the freezing rain.

Snow has a lot of beauty of its own, and we do have birds that stay here all winter.

Love,
vicky

Winter has truly arrived in this part of the world.
At the moment everything is white and fluffy, but soon all that beauty will disappear in the morning traffic.

In some parts of the world everything will always be white.

And here is another little creature that blends in with the winter white.

Widely distributed across northern North America and Eurasia, ermines are most abundant in thickets, woodlands, and semi-timbered areas.
