The coming of Winter

In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron
Water like a stone
Snow had fallen
Snow on snow on snow-Gustav Holst

Winter is coming.

Before you say it,

I agree,

Winter is beautiful.

The sunlight,

bouncing off,

the snow,

the muted,

noise of the city.

Wearing our,

favourite scarves.

Advent,

Christmas,

mulled wine,

hygge,

fleece,

wool,

Glerups,

plaid,

carols,

hymns,

seeing friends,

snuggling with Georgie,

reading,

reading,

reading,

walking in the snow.

I am getting my mind,

ready for Winter,

I am making my nest,

mine.

I am piling books.

I am investigating,

new devotionals,

I am looking into,

exercise videos,

and vegan soup,

recipes,

I am,

going to acquire,

walking poles,

snow pants,

and a SAD lamp.

It will be a sad,

holiday season,

it will be hard to,

visit family and even,

friends,

but, I will try new things,

I will invite my bff,

to play board games,

I will spend Christmas eve,

evening in bed,

with a new book,

and share that experience,

with a special someone.

I don’t like Winter,

but, I have learned to,

appreciate kale,

Rooibos,

and even,

squash,

I can learn to like,

Winter,

I can use it as a time of,

rejuvenation.

I come from Winter people,

coureur des bois,

Scottish millworkers,

Hungarian machinists,

tough,

hard working,

people.

I can do Winter,

I will do Winter.

Be well,

stay safe, wear your masks.

Love you all,

Later girls,

BB

p.s to my American sisters and brothers, I am with you in this momentous time, Godspeed.
