Winters Trade

Everyone sees winter as something terrible. It’s to cold, to wet and to dark. But I see winter as something beautiful. Not to cold, to wet or to dark.

I see it as rejuvenation.

I see the world healing and dancing. Yes, dancing. 

I see the way the snowflakes dance through the air. Swirling down to the earth, kissing it with its cool winter lips.

I see winter preparing the land for spring, sealing off any past life with its raw, bitter hand.

I see how it carries its frozen breath over the old growth

Freezing it in time so the earth doesn’t look bare.

 I see winter’s trade.

It’s teachings of numbing the past so something new can grow.

I see how winter is life.

  1. I love your perspective on winter! Your ideas make winter much more tolerable. I have always enjoyed watching the snow fall and the shimmering glow it gives once it has accumulated across the ground.

    1. Thank-you! You beautifully described that. 🙂

  2. I like winter 🙂 The only thing I don’t like about it here in Australia is how short the days are.

    1. Me to! It’s my favourite time of year. I can definitely relate to that. 🙂

  3. You have changed my view of winter, I have always dreaded winter, thinking about it as healing and restoring makes me smile and at least try to embrace winter a little more tolerance. Thank you

    1. No, thank-you! I’m glad to hear that! 🙂
