Winter Reflections

We finally got more snow here in northern Utah. Yay! Such a crazy winter. This is one of my back deck views.

My oldest son, Zach, and I went for a scenic drive recently, and stopped at the Pass of the Standing Rock. According to a placard, this rock is 100 feet tall and 75 feet wide. It weighs several thousand tons.

Pioneer settlers named other rock formations in the area. My favorite names they chose are: Peek a Boo, Three Bars of Soap, and Johnny Jump Off.

Twilight cremes edge pale blue sky; Frosted pine trees stretched up high.

‘Tis the beginning of wintertide.

Powder crunches beneath booted feet; Roof tops coated in white sheets.

Chilled air nibbles nose and ears; My house is crying crystal tears.

‘Tis the show of wintertide.

Romping outings in the snow; Hearthside cozy and aglow.

Melted chocolate, snowflake mugs; Read alouds with cuddle-hugs.

Tis the joy of wintertide.

It’s 6pm, pitch black outside; Jack Frost’s antics never hide.

This is how the days pass by until the end of Wintertide.
