Hurray for Winter Solstice 2008!
No I am not cheering for Winter.
Today December the 21 is the shortest day of the year,
so that means that everyday will get a little longer now
which only will bring us more daylight.
As many know I am not a winter person so I am
longing to get through it and get it over as soon as possible.
With a temperature of 15 degrees and wind chills making
it feel from 10 to 20 below zero Winter solstice has came in
Winter GardenIn winter's cold and sparkling snow,
The garden in my mind does grow.
I look outside to blinding white,
And see my tulips blooming bright.
And over there a sweet carnation,
Softly scents my imagination.
On this cold and freezing day,
The Russian sage does gently sway,
And miniature roses perfume the air,
I can see them blooming there.
Though days are short, my vision's clear.
And through the snow, the buds appear.
In my mind, clematis climbs,
And morning glories do entwine.
Woodland phlox and scarlet pinks,
Replace the frost, if I just blink.
My inner eye sees past the snow.
And in my mind, my garden grows.
