Clean, crisp air of a December morn,
Penetrates to your bones.
Waking you with an longing,
Beckoning you to explore-
The frozen landscapes born.

We are embarking on a new season here, winter. It starts with frosts and freezes, and then wet snowflakes until finally the ground succumbs to its icy way. This poem was written in late fall 2011 to celebrate the shift to winter.
Tomorrow starts my Seasonal Celebrations meme for winter. Check out my post at Gardens Eye View, on Monday, and join in the celebration of the change of seasons, no matter where you are on earth. I also invite you to read an excerpt of my Winter story in the latest issue of RURAL magazine.
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.
And I am linking in with the Kara@A Spirit of Simplicity for her Tuesday Afternoon meme, the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, and with Judith@Lavender Cottage who is hosting Mosaic Monday.
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.
Special Note: The pictures here are from the first frost in my garden in late October.
I leave you with a few additional words about my frozen world now seen in nature. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
