Time to Reflect

by Ellie Shepherd

Snowfall – soft, enticing, ice tingles on my tongue

I reach deep within, shrouded in wool, remembering days of shimmering hues and skates on frozen ground.

Gone but never forgotten, I cling to its essence, like a child reaching for comfort.

Yet, I dread and embrace the winter months, pine trees clad in winter garb, the branches shaking free of snowy weight.

A savage wilderness wraps its frosted embrace around my world. So, this becomes my time of reflection,

of misted streams, a blanket of white with bone-chilling touch.

The earth waits, as do I to be reborn.
