A Walk in th Snowy Woods

Its winter…

& I’m going for a walk in the snowy woods.

            You come too.

 We’ll wear keep-your-head-warm hats,

             hand-clapping-mittens,

            & snow-stomping-boots.

 We’ll see trees without leaves,

            maple, oak, birch, & beech.

 Their trunks & branches standing tall in the snow

            stretching high in the sky.

 We’ll see piney green trees holding snow in their branches.

            & red berry bushes with bright juicy fruit.

 We’ll see a squirrel’s nest, high in a tree,

            made messy with leaves.

 Maybe we’ll see squirrels, black, brown or gray,

           nibbling on nuts.

 We’ll see winter birds

            chick-a-dee-dee-dees

            blue jays

            & upside-down nut-hatches

 We’ll come to a stream

            with ice clumps & icicles.

 We might see a deer drink from the stream.

 Then we’ll come to the old stoney bridge.

Walking in the Woods

We’ll cross over the bridge

Just to see what’s on the other side…

            More snowy woods.

 But its chilly & late

            & we’ll see the sun sinking

 So we’ll turn back home.

            to hot chocolate & warm socks.

 And leave more of the snowy woods for another day’s walk.

    I am always amazed how something as simple in nature as a snow covered bridge or sunset breaking thru a snow covered woods can take our breath away….. if we let it. Thanks for sharing those moments.
