At this time of the year
I always think
that winter
must feel tired.
The cozy newness
of the season
in November and December
is gone
and after getting the New Year started,
Winter nears the end of its term.
Its done its time
and as it (oh so slowly)
begins to turn the world over
to the next season
the light seems thin,
the cold weary,
and the wind aimless.


  1. A beautiful reflection on the seasons there. Here in the south, as we're preparing for Autumn to really get going it's nice to imagine the approaching Spring around the other side of the world.

  2. i love the idea that seasons tire just as people do. i feel as though the sun is stretching and warming up for the spring while winter starts to retreat. --lovely post, as per usual. xo

  3. such beautiful words and photos.

  4. Mmmmmm.........such lovely colors in that basket :)

  5. Beautiful. And those granny squares... :)
