The Winter

 

The Winter

 

The Hawk cuts Through the Cool air Above.

The Ground below is Frozen.

The Oaks respect Her mighty Flight.

Nature has no Match for her Grace.

Squirrels Frolic amongst the Trees,

They Play according to Ancient Ritual Greetings.

Ignorance has Little Fear.

The Bright Sun Warms the Wind.

The Leaves have Fallen, Leaving the Trees Naked.

The Rebirth is Coming.

The Spring Awaits the Cleansing

Of the Cold Winter.

The Sun rises Late and Sets early.

Darkness Purges many of the Day’s Impurities.

All Life Prepares for Hibernation.

Solitude gives Way to the New Beginning.

As I walk through the Season Dedicated to the Birth of Christ,

I Realize the Rebirth of Man.

Winter is the Messenger of Change.

Decay Gives way to New Origins.

It is Important to be in Peace.

The Seeds of Goodwill and Mercy

Are sown in my heart.

In the Spring, They will Grow.

Today the Pain of Change is Small.

Today I join the Metamorphosis of Nature.
