The colors of the winter sunset,
The ever increasing daylight,
The pure whiteness of the snow,
The presence of the winter birds,
All these things allow me to see beauty despite the chilling cold, and wind.
Each morning no matter the temperature,
I must hurry to attend the birds and squirrels.
They know my routine, and their appearance is itself their gift to me.
In all of winter that surrounds me, I see and know the hands of the Creator.
