We Finally Have Snow...

We have been waiting all winter for some real snow. We finally got it. 
First we had rain, then sleet, then snow. 
Here are a few pictures for some quiet reflection.














Pine and Forsythia










Squirrel Tracks





 
                
                               The Angels Know

        The snow is lightly falling to earth from heaven above
     wrapping around the old spruce tree like a gentle hug of love

   The Angels wake and shake the snow from off their golden wings
         and If you listen closely  you may just hear them sing.

   Among the twinkling stars they watch us all down here below
         They sing a song of patience - for this is what they know.

         The Secrets of the Future are Held Beneath the Snow.

                                                             Crave Cute
             
















Hope you have a beautiful day.

  5. Gorgeous pictures - they are just like fairyland. Did you write the poem yourself - it is beautiful. I especially love the last line - it gives such a wonderful image of the re-birth of Spring!

    1. Thanks Sharon! Yes I did write the poem a few years ago in my journal after a beautiful day of watching the snow fall onto the spruce tree in our front yard. I am so glad you got it, sometimes I'm not always sure my words are projecting the right picture! But yes, it is all about the re-birth of Spring and Life in general!

  6. I got goosebumps when I read the last line. It captures that idea so perfectly! It made the poem even more special when I realised you must have written it yourself.

  9. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Ivy and Elephants.' Your blog is pretty, and your pictures are full of life! I really loved the heart post, as I have a thing for hearts too. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty, and it is very cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a lovely evening.
