Of winter's lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer's secret
Deep down within its heart.

Charles G. Stater

Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments,
embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.

John Boswell


This time of the year has come early here, so I thought I might bring back this lovely thread to add some beauty to it all.

Winter has officially arrived.
Enjoy all the beauty that comes with the season,
and bundle up for the cold.

Love,
Sue.

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."

Birds on the branches
In the evening darkness-
Can they find berries?

Now that winter is here, it has its amazing and pure beauty, but also its many hardships.

...In summer when I passed the place
I had to stop and lift my face;
A bird with an angelic gift
Was singing in it sweet and swift..

...From my advantage on a hill
I judged that such a crystal chill
Was only adding frost to snow
As gilt to gold that wouldn't show...

Tang poetry

Before my bed, the moonlight shines,
Could it be the frost, covering the ground?
I raise my head, look at the bright moon,
I set back, and think of my native land.

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 yoko and Inda for adding the lovely pictures.
Winter has its beautiful moments even though the weather can be harsh, and we can even have a lot of fun.

Love,

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,

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.

This is such a beautiful white arctic fox.
Thank you Inda.

And yes, today we have a lot of snow and it keeps on snowing.

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.

It is deep winter here at the moment.
It is always nice to warm it up with a hot cup of tea;
this makes looking at the snowflakes a pleasant experience.

Winter has arrived, but it is still quite mild here. We have not had any snow yet, but I am enjoying this weather. It is nice to go for a walk without wearing too many clothes.

you are right Vicky,

winter is here but it is still very mild. I actually like this weather, although it would be nice to see a bit more sun.

In winter bare boughs that seem to sleep work covently.
