Christmas Gifts

Christmas Gifts 

Green cedar trees under the snow.
Two hearts, one package wrapped in red.
The Chevy’s engine running low.
Warm hands inside wool mitten thread. 

A barred owl shakes his furry head.
Green cedar trees under the snow.
The Chevy lurches like a sled
toward narrow trees straight in a row.

Bump bump bump bump! Watch out below!                    Banner Mountain
Don’t hit that little rabbit’s bed!
Green cedar trees under the snow,
fast turning wheels stop on a tread. 

One kiss, one hug, one moon that spread
its beam as soft as candle glow.                          DSC_0507
Two hearts, one package wrapped in red.
Green cedar trees under the snow.

    What a nice wintery feel (alas missing in our current snowless, foggy winter)

    • Thanks. I kept trying to get a background of snow for the blog, but as you see, it doesn’t look like snow, but it highlights the falling snow. Actually, we are getting rain that earlier this evening was a mix. Way too cold for me, though. The summer spoiled me.
