Embracing Winter

summer’s glory fades away, the natural world transitions to shades of gray
but not all color is lost in the touch of winter’s attack on the landscape
bits and pieces, reds and browns, the pines staying ever green
water not yet ready to surrender to the icy grip descending, winds along it’s path
the sky at day’s end, sun breaking through as the storm moves east
golden glow, shades of white and gray canvas to be backlit by the setting orb
I glide along the trail, parallel to the tracks of those who still walk the path
winter has come, my skis know the way and we share the journey together
