Evergreens

Blue Pine with Snow

Evergreens, standing tall in the blue twilight

of the winter sky,

centurians of fir, spruce and pine trees 

lingering in a scent of Christmas

guarding, watching over

the silence

of the snow covered forest.

The Beauty of Winter

20180204_121623

The beauty of winter never lives within the color white

or in the silence of snowflakes surrounding, swirling

around our heads as chrystals

take shape in mid-air.

The beauty of winter

is usually found in the peace

we hold in our hearts,

sacred prayers

from the quiet within.

Well, I guess snow

is quite beautiful too.

Under the Blue Light of Winter

100_5673

Hidden away, in the stillness of the snow

under the blue light of winter

a set of eyes,

looking up

with a humble heart

releasing a prayer

and heaven,

as heaven often does,

begins to open

to listen

to the beautiful phrases

of Grandmother Squirrel.

I love when squirrels pray,

don’t you?
