Lecture: Winter Blues


In the midst of the storm

sulking in the winter time

nature decided to lecture

its purpose on a dime


When my winds are raging

covering the landscape with ice and snow

everything has a reason

on this tour we go


The snow and ice

melt into the rivers in the spring

life giving water

necessary for the rebirth of all things


The cold temperatures

are an equalizer for damaging bugs

slowing their growth

for when trees begin to bud


There is sparkling beauty

when the sun shines on the snow

an adventure in skiing and sledding

laughter on the go


Winter winding down

its time is done

a spring bulb emerges

with the spring sun
