A Winter Stroll

Shivering in the cold

on this icy day

hearing a cryptic sound

coming my way

Is it an animal

or the wind

splitting hairs over the crunching ice

where the water is thin

Snow is blowing

catching a quick glimpse

seeing the source of the sound

it’s a small imp

Changing direction

to avoid this devil

stumbling on the ice

stream is ground level

Skating on the ice

speeding down the falls

doing some unique turns

reveling in it all

One last look

at the breathtaking scenery

beautiful snow and ice

contrast to the summer greenery

Back in the cabin

by a cozy fire

wrapped in a blanket

time to retire
