Nearing Winter Solstice


as we near the Solstice
days have been mostly gray


yesterday
the sun came out
the mountains breath turned into clouds


 to set sight on these views was to change our 
breath and spirit


though the large views captured attention

I also noted that the snow had piled up
of entirely miniature
snowflakes

I wish you all a lovely Solstice

    1. Just the right amount of snow showed the rocks off. Now we have too much snow and they are buried.

    1. Thank you Rain. Looks like we have WEATHER for the solstice. At least now we have 3 fresh inches of snow and it is above freezing, more more to come and wind too.
