A Winter's Scene

by Tom Horonzy

Winter Brings... Contest Winner 
Away from the maddening world
in a land with no one else  
you arise to a golden sun
to witness a muted wonder.
The only sounds heard
are dropping dollops
escaping snow-covered limbs.
Even the wind refuses to blow
hypnotized by a snowy glow
emanating in the morning light
having white become whiter. 
Then, from a thicket
a snowshoe hare appears, 
whiskers twitching 
breathing air fresher 
than a spring daisy.
Further along an obstructed path
a tawny doe advances forward
nibbling on fir tree needles
the only visible fare to eat.
Ole Sol rises a lil further,
adding heat to beaming light
creating cascading waters
that retrace thoroughfares
historically dug slaking
an ocean's longing thirst.

The photography is my own. A composite of two shots taken on our farm, Nevertheless Acres. Fits the piece, don't you agree?

Happy New Year
