Happy New Year Abbie and all.
Please keep the snow!

Winter Through the Senses

In the silent snowfall,
see flakes swirl.
Amid white-covered streets, sidewalks,
feel snow crunch beneath your boots.
Hear the rumble of a distant snow blower.

Indoors, feel the warmth of slippers on your feet.
Breathe the aroma of steaming cocoa.
Savor the flavor of its frothy, chocolaty goodness,
safe, warm while snow keeps falling.

  1. Thank you, Patty, for re-blogging. I’ll do my best to keep the snow from spreading to your neck of the woods.


  2. Thanks for this, Patty and Abbie. Here in Denver, we have also had very little snow so far this fall and early winter, only about 9 inches total, although with more in the mountains, to our west. We got about 2 inches last night. It’s very cold here today, in the teens, after unusually warm months before this, with daytime temps in the 40s, 50s, and even low 60s. We sure need more snow for the trees and bushes! I like winter if it’s not too extreme. Below zero daytime temps and snowfalls of more than a few inches are not much fun. We’ve lived here since 1971, and we’ve seen snowfalls of more than two feet or even more than three feet. Talk about disruptive! But those are rare, thank goodness. Inside, yes, I also love cozy slippers and hot drinks, although I can’t eat chocolate or drink cocoa. But hot tea is nice, and so is chai. Here’s wishing everyone a good winter and a Happy New Year, no matter where you live!
