Tonight at sunset walking on the snowy road, my shoes crunching on the frozen gravel, first
through the woods, then out into the open fields past a couple of trailers and some pickup trucks, I stop
and look at the sky. Suddenly: orange, red, pink, blue, green, purple, yellow, gray, all at once and everywhere.
I pause in this moment at the beginning of my old age and I say a prayer of gratitude for getting to this evening
a prayer for being here, today, now, alive in this life, in this evening, under this sky.

The first day of winter
Can take us by surprise in Minnesota. A forecast of impending snow usually comes before the official calendar date of winter's arrival. This surprised robin must feel the way many Minnesotans feel when the season changes before the calendar does!
It is a common misconception that the earth is farthest from the sun in winter. The Earth is, instead, closest to the sun in December...winter in the northern hemisphere.
The winter solstice is the date with the shortest day and the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. That date/time will be between December 21 and December 22 each year in and thus the "official" start of winter in Minnesota.

Winter by Lawanna Holt Winter is snowy and cold season. Christmas is in winter. Winter is when you get out for Christmas break. Winter is when you have hot chocolate with marshal mallows. Winter is the season for colds and sinus problems. Winter is when you have snow days. Winter is when you wrap up in your favorite warm blanket. Winter is like a very white Christmas, very wonderful. Winter is wonderful season. Winter is fun season because you can play in the snow.

You're The Reason I'm Living
If I had one wish. If one desire could come true. If I had one wish. My wish would be you.
If I could choose. I would stay in your arms forever. Our hearts would fuse. And our love would become an endeavor.
I would wish for you to stay with me. For you to be my love. You would be my hearts key. Forever my angel, my dove.
Forever is a long time. To require in a single command. I will write our love in a rhyme. For it would be my demand.
I would ask of this. Only with your permission. Lost in a kiss. Our love is my ambition.
So I wished upon the star. The star that reminded me most of you. My actions seemed bizarre. But this wish I had to pursue.
If I had one wish. My wish would be you. And since I made that wish. My wish has come true...
