On A Wintry Day.

I feel the fresh crispness every time I take a breath,
I can see my breath, my only companion,
I can hear the sound of my feet crunching in the snow,
As I look mesmerized they too are silent.
I feel a gentle urging to continue on,
to feast upon the gifts laid out right before me.
the open tranquil sky, the smell of the pines,
even the shadows seem mysterious.
dancing upon the whiteness of the snow.
It is truly beautiful,
When first I arrived my heart felt heavy,
now it feels surprisingly  light!
I have stayed a good long while,
and fast approaches night
I see our vehicle approaching,
my husband coming to pick me up,
soon we will be back at home,
sipping chicken noodle soup
from our favorite Christmas cups,
we sat in front of the fire,
gazing at the flames
feeling their warmth  take the chill from the air..
It really was one of my Very Best Days.

Take care
