new blankets of white
many children laughing bright
cocoa melts snowflakes

I love winter time
sitting by the warm fire
drinking hot cocoa

watching snowflakes fall
throwing snow at my sister
getting punished now

Jenni says...

Now, the longest night,
The warm, golden sun returns
And we are cozy.


Hari says...

Take a breath and see
the light in each moment
a blessing to all.

Sun out of order
Don't you know we need your warmth?
Winter solstice comes

Cycles come and go
Deep within the earth, stillness
Waiting for green buds

Snowing, ground all white
Grabbing my mat, SNOW YOGA!
Frozen Feet....gone in

I love when the leaves 
fall off of the trees, and we
get to see their bones

Snow, rejoices cloud
See the pure light blanket
Bird prints on the path

Winter solstice touch
Your coldness quivers me, burr
Old quilt, warm fire

Wind howls still tree
Branches knocking like a drum
What kind of silence is this?
