Blanket of Cotton
Blanket of cotton
All as it surrounds.
With its soft white cushion
Drifts of stillness, silence abounds.

Last winter our snow drifts were up to 7 feet, and temps were extremely COLD! This verse is how I envisioned the snow as it insulated the garden like a blanket. The pictures included here were taken last year in my garden during our wild winter with huge drifts.
The latest issue of the on-line magazine, Rural, is out. It is aptly named, Winter Love. An except of my poem, Blanket of Cotton, and a short essay, In Winter Play In The Garden, are included in this amazing publication. I am honored to be included with so many creative writers and photographers.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, with Judith@Lavender Cottage who is hosting Mosaic Monday and with Kara@A Spirit of Simplicity for her Tuesday Afternoon meme.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
I leave you with a few additional words about the blanket of cotton. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
