Seasons Spin Around the Calendar

Seasons Spin Around the Calendar

Seasons spin around the calendar…each with a unique purpose. My grammar school teachers spun the calendar round…month by month, rather than, season by season. Every month hosted a new theme. September bore bright red apples, pencils, papers, and a large yellow bus. October was the beginning of crimson, gold, and amber leaves…jack-o-lanterns and trick-or treat. November … Continue reading

Winter’s Wrath

Winter’s Wrath

Winter’s wrath can be brutal–damaging and leaving debris in its wake.

Slow To See

Slow To See

Old Man Winter has returned to my part of the world. His chill breath blows cold, dropping temperatures to single digits and below. Ground frozen stiff is dressed in a suit of white, tailor-made in heaven. Drifts, smooth and white–glittering like diamonds–fringe snow covered roads and fence enclosed fields. Long translucent icicles hold tight like … Continue reading
