Winter's Wonder

Winter
crystalline grace
farewell to autumn's warmth
hibernating until springs glow
dreaming

Snowflakes
falling to earth
amazingly unique
green pines whispering in silence
hopeful

Snow-owl
silent wisdom
wonders unfold in night
seeing past the veil of darkness
guidance

Author's note: snow is arriving
a time of change
