Sunday Stroll - In the Winter Wood



In the winter woods,
there is a quiet stillness.


Our feet crunch through the icy snow,
and the heavy branches 
reach down to greet us as we walk.



Everything rests.



The meadows sleep,
beneath blankets of snow.


We walk together,
barely speaking,
letting our pace be slowed,
by the winter wood.


Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.

Sunday Stroll - Slow Living







Will you walk with me on the quiet streets
of this sleepy town
on a foggy February afternoon?


We will see the colors and textures 
of the winter,
all around us.


We will hear the cold rain fall
and feel the snow turn to slush
beneath our carefull steps.


Above us,
everything stretches
toward the sky.

And down below
we lean into spring
though it is weeks away.




Shall we linger at the library?
It is a good day to read,
and to walk slowly
while the winter teases us
with glimpses of spring.


Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you serenity and joy.

Sunday Stroll: Contrasts


My son and I are staying in town, 
where we can walk to school
and the beach
and the library
and market
when it isn’t “ten below.”





On the weekends,
I head out to the farm
for a little while
so I can run with the wolves...
or the husky, 
as the case may be.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.

Sunday Stroll: Happy Trails


Winter blooms

The luminous moon rises.


Light falls in the west, 
but still we run.



Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you happy trails.

Winter


Winter has fallen on these northern hills.









Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.
