Winter slips silently around me
Walking me to cold, crisp woods
To gaze upon the peaceful slumber
Suddenly exhilarated, restored in found solace.

This poem was written on February 6, 2012, during a particularly cold, snowy winter. There is something about the snow; like being in a fantasy world, peaceful where you do not even notice the cold. I love to walk in snowy woods, and let my senses do my thinking.
And I am reminded of that winter this year, but now being retired I can enjoy it daily, either inside or out, without worrying about travelling in snow.
