Winter Skies

Winds from the south brought warm air to January skies
I watch the dirty remains of snow drifts melting
into tiny rivers flowing wildly down the asphalt
toward their destination of nowhere
a small crow lands on a scraggly winter brown shrub
and boldly caws, daring the song birds to return early
for he knows, as I know, that this winter is far from over
the air will chill again, more snow will fall
and I have plenty of cold days remaining
days to savor the peace and solitude of winter
a warm fire, a cup of tea, and a good book
come Winter and shroud my world
in your blanket of white stillness
for just a little longer

Song for a Winter’s Night ~Gordon Lightfoot

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
