Leaves are gone now, buried under a cloak of white snow
Aspen trees, silent and restful, the forest sleeps in peace.
Like an empty church, sacred and tranquil.
A time to rest and reflect.
Life will come back here.
I trust winter’s promise.
“Alpenglow on the Adamant Range” Selkirk Mountains, British Columbia
“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. ” — John Steinbeck
