In the Deep of Winter

Wilhelm Kray (1828 – 1889) – Winter

I went outside, surprised to see the frost-touched grass, that it had stayed frozen throughout the day. I looked to the white sun, seeing it in the water, feeling there was little warmth left in it, and that it was always low on the horizon, and that I’d miss it if I wasn’t careful. If I lingered too long with my tasks, it would suddenly be gone, slipped behind the mountain.

Even the large pines were dusted silver, and the grass crunched under my feet as I climbed the hill, sitting for a moment, staring out on the lake, the fading light, seeing frozen drops glistening all around me, feeling that the world had quieted, suddenly overnight, whispering hush, rest now.

    You describe the frosty pre-snow day so beautifully. Every time I read your posts I long to experience the beauty in nature, in all seasons, and find peace. Especially that guest post you wrote makes me yearn to find the trust and faith you have in the Goddess, and the something that would allow me to value this over all things and look for guidance, meaning, connection, inspiration in everything I do. The peace and wisdom reflected in your words is very healing, I’ve said it before and I feel it every time I visit your blog 🙂
