Winter’s Majesty


Winter here in the Chicagoan area is finally showing its true colors with the blanketing of about four inches of magical white today.

Imagine for a moment.

The dirt disappears,

Dull colors are decorated,

Branches are beautified with contrast,

Potholes are covered up.

Everything, everywhere,

Has a blank slate.

To begin again,

Start over,

With a fresh new outlook.


The snow plow gets started,

Shovels hit the pavement,

People leave their footprints,

Children make snow angels.

Sledding leave its tracks,

Snow isn’t white anymore.

To begin,

All over again.

P.S. Those dirty little ducks I blogged about earlier, are back again, stay tuned for a future posting.

    A beautifully captured autumn left-over covered in his majesty Winter’s coat. What makes the picture is those smoothly formed drops on the leaf and the limited colour palette.
