Nature's Blanket

Snow...
...silenced the woods...
who bowed in reverence...
and stood tall under the burden...
I walked quietly so as not to intrude.
Sometimes you have to give in to the power of nature and simply enjoy.

I'm thinking, HOW did you get those piles of snow on your tree limbs? I KNOW you're an Okie like me--what happened to the WIND up there?!?!?!?

So gorgeous! I didn't get to see any of that pretty snow.

Beautiful! Are you the poet or is this from another author? Although I don't enjoy the cold or driving in the slickness, these words express how I feel about the beauty and silence of snow . . . so touching!

I always love a fresh blanket of snow. Love you quilt from the last post. It's beautiful the way you did all the stitching.

Stunning! Wow! I live in Queensland, Australia where it is hot all year 'round. I found looking at your pictures so refreshing!

You are right...as much snow as we have received in the area you do have to just give in and enjoy the beauty!!

How beautiful. Thank you. And I especially like the reminder to simultaneously bow in reverence to, & stand tall with What Is.

Definitely, there is nothing like the quiet and peace of a new snowfall. Glad you took the time to appreciate it.
