WARM WISHES
A post card of warm wishes:
When wintery winds whirl,
Twirling wan lips to fresco,
Echo of words relinquish their repeat,
Sleep, under blankets of snow ensue;
Few so few, are the leaves of green,
Keen though are firs and pine which seek,
Peaking over vast wastelands of snow;
Grow then, in the warm embers of hearth,
Birth of Springtime as hope to treasure,
Measure of nature is a well planned oath

  2. I think it's pretty cool that you have empathy--or maybe it's sympathy--for those in the frozen north dealing with what they're dealing with...while you look at a beautiful beach each and every day--lol Best wishes!

  10. Hi Gillena ~~ I like this but I don't like the winter season. But,... It does prepare us to WARMLY welcome spring. We are experiencing winter that we usually don't have here near the Texas Gulf Coast. Snow but more ice. Traffic is stopped, either didn't go or didn't get back and are stranded on the road. Last year we lost three trees in the back yard, I don't know this year. We did lose our pretty hibiscus last week to the cold.
    Love ya for the reminders,
    ..
