Midwinter.

Water_witch-2by Abigael16 Nov 2013

Time of grey skies and hibernation
quiet nights spent in contemplation
deep depression and more low pressure
In life I seek each little treasure.

Two goldfinch flit around dry seedheads
and brighten the dormant flower beds
roses blooming in late December
cherry blossoms in winter weather

A bowl of ministroni steaming hot
full of goodness,home-made in the pot
lots of tomato, the soup is deep red
grandaughters chatter as we break bread

a snow moon is full, the stars are bright
I've someone to share this stunning sight.
Blackbirds larder's a berry laden shrub
they land each dawn to fill up with grub.

In the dew of little things heart sings
it's morning and refreshed - life zings.
