Ode to Winter....

Upon looking up 'ode to winter' I did find some poems, but
nothing that could tell the story of MY 'ode to winter' so I
decided to write my own..
Hope you enjoy it.



As the sun makes shadows on things unknown
two deer appear to lend beauty of their own...


On the top of a stone wall stands a man-made sight....


And here, a Playhouse frozen silent by a darkening winter night...



Visitors enticed by their sense of smell...



Under cover of dark sample what's in the well...

As the sunlight floods the early morn....



A furry head pops up to finish the left over corn....



The Chickadee calls out in the cold morning air...


And all of nature rejoices, for winter's deep dying groan
Will be but in a moment....
Soon replaced by the winds of Spring with a song of her own..

But for now let's look at the rest of the winter scenes and enjoy


Deer stand out so well in the white background of snow


On this bright day of snow and sunshine I was blessed
to see many White-tail Deer and was privileged to
get their pictures.

This one looks like a young male... attitude on his face..

But this one must be a female.. look at those long lovely lashes
and beautiful almond shaped eyes..
Although we long for Spring.. winter lingers on

and on


close up

or far away ..God's beauty is everywhere




Let's take one last look at the snow coming down

blowing howling wind and white all around


This week the first sign of Spring in the air...at least for me
The return of these birds to the tree where I work.

Yep! The Kestrels return. Some of you already knew..
The very first picture of them ... more to come...

That is beautiful. Everytime I see deer, I feel like I have received an extra blessing that day.

I wish I could say that I have seen some birds as beautiful as the two that have returned to where you work; however, I did see a tree today where several Turkey Buzzards were perched...That is a sign spring is coming too.
