I could never understand

why people complain

about snow and long nights.

The changing seasons

are wonderful

in the way everything is transformed.


A crisp winter day

is invigorating

and the snow is beautiful

in the way

it settles on twigs and branches.



Hoar frost

on spiders webs

and withered stalks,

patterned ice on puddles

and lochs.



The stars and moon

make the nights

far more interesting

and a walk across moonlit fields

or watching its reflection

shimmer on the water.



Even a dismal grey day

is never wasted

if you just get out

and see the birds

or watch a river glide along.



These all make you feel so alive

and connected to nature.
