Life is still beautiful!



Autumn bids a fond farewell
As Sister Winter

takes her place
The colors

of the trees in glory
With Winter’s white

is soon replaced
As Winter’s gift

 is gently falling
Upon the trees

that soundly sleep
The world in silent

wonder watches
The miracle

the season brings



nothing in this world
May live forever

in its youth
And likewise

winter starts to age
Her beauty

she begins to lose


Her snow

white hair

now turns to gray
Her voice

is quiet when she speaks
And as the days grow

warm and long,
Her touch is light

 while she grows weak


And soon the people

who had loved her
Grow tired

of her chilling song
Then Winter sadly

 leaves her throne
And waits

 for baby spring

to come along


So old,

frail Winter bids farewell
As Sister Spring

 now takes her place
She waits with quiet,

 steady patience
To come again

with youth and grace.

    Here in Finland has been warm and dry, until today it started to rain at last. Nature needs water and is joyful to get some. Soon starting to translate my thoughts from yesterday. Hugs Blessings…
