Fin d’Année : Years end

Fin d’Année!

Stark charcoal trees echo
across lake still and clear as ice
lilies sleep in their watery bed
while wild ducks faraway flown.

“We will return a warmer day
to sit with you.”

Welcome winter for its
warm firesides, frosts
and low mists, mysterious
worlds where wildlife
hibernate, hedgehogs
beneath woodpiles, beware!
And don’t mind the mice
who scurry in through hidey holes
simply share.

cross, duras in mist, 013

Bonne Année 2016!

  1. This was a gorgeous greeting and thank you for blessing us with the gift of trees. Tranquil and yet, solemn quiet given here. The reflection in the water is so still and clear. Hugs, ♡ Robin
