A Winters Walk
Written by V. Rodney Harrison Jr. – 10-20-2011
The wind plays along the trail making the limbs creak slightly,
And the sun struggles to peak through the gray sky overhead.
Tis a day for a journey lead by nature’s cool touch,
A chapter in life, that to this day that has been unread.
Dense branches on soaring trees are now covered in crystal,
Mother Nature’s sparkling tinsel in its most natural state.
All the leaves have long since fallen and are buried deep below,
Beneath the fresh snow that has covered all that lies in wait.
The ice covered stream no longer runs freely as the wind blows by,
Frozen in time is the water that once flowed through the lands.
A heavy sheet of ice now serves all, as an arctic seasonal bridge,
Allowing passage, that before, was not well within hand.
In the distance there is movement alongside a powder covered shrub,
A majestic doe grazes quietly on the sparse blades of brown and green.
While the white flakes fall in abundance in blissful utter silence,
A fantastic sight to behold – that to most man’s eyes goes unseen.
The peaceful travel back leads to a log fashioned dwelling,
With a warm fireplace’s burning scent - filling the brisk air.
Twinkling lights upon a tree can be seen through the window,
And my experiences - to my loved ones – inside I shall share.
For Winters splendor is all around us in so many captivating ways,
One may never actually attain all that she so willing to give..
So enjoy her vivid beauty every day of this blessed season,
And through her sparkling pure essence you shall truly live.
