I love cold weather. I don’t know how to explain it; cold weather, especially if there is snow, makes me happy inside. I love putting on layers of clothing and my good pair of snow boots and going outside to play, walk around, and take pictures. I even enjoy being inside on a cold snowy day, window blinds open to the beauty.

I feel almost the same about a cold, rainy day. Give me a warm beverage, my comfy socks, and a good book to read….that makes a great day! It’s not pleasant, however, if it is a humid, sticky rain; I prefer it cold!

This winter has been colder than usually around here. Many friends are complaining, and begging spring to hurry. Me? I am quite satisfied. Nothing would make me happier than a cold, snowy February.

 

Passion of Winter and Earth January 26, 2013

Winter and Earth

Winter slowly rakes his frozen nails

down Earth’s brown, sloping back

Earth trembles at his soft touch

afraid, yet excited, at what is yet to come

Winter gently blows his cool breath

against Earth’s lovely breasts

creating frost at each summit

Earth holds her breath, tingling, anticipating…

Snow drifts form

where their bodies join together

winds whip and whirl around them

an intense blizzard rages

as their passion builds and grows

Winter throws back his head and moans

as Earth bucks once more beneath him

the storm is over

only a few soft snowflakes left to fall

as the passion

between Winter and Earth

is spent.

~Rainey

 

Winter Haiku

cold drips from the sky

splashes on the landscape and

frosts the world in white.

frosted world

I woke up feeling awful, so I called in and went back to bed. I woke up a little later still feeling lousy. Then I made a mistake; I went online and looked at a project I’ve managed at work and saw no  little progress. I took some medication, showered, and crawled into work. I only stayed a few hours, but I completed a lot of the little things that needed to be done. Now I am back home, already in my pajamas and ready for bed. It is 5:30.

It is blustery and cold here; my favorite kind of weather. I wish I felt better! I would LOVE to go out and take some photos. I guess I will just settle in and watch from my window. There will be other days.

Stay warm, my friends.

 

Goodbye, My Winter April 1, 2012

Here it is, my goodbye to winter. April is here, and it is time for spring flowers. I am ready, but I feel a certain sadness to say goodbye to winter. Winter is a thoughtful season with its long hours of darkness and blustery hours of light. I love the coziness of the cold, bitter season that sets in and rules what we humans can and cannot do. I love the cleanness of the bare trees as they prepare for a glorious rebirth. I envy that nature can do that each year. Imagine what it would be like if we could be stripped bare each winter, only to experience a complete rebirth come spring. Nice.
