Winter Growth and Warmth

In the cold

It’s hard to be bold

Or so I’m told.

AND YET

Some persons have written:

“Winter forms our character and brings out our best.” –Tom Allen

“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation.” –Paul Theroux

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”” –Edith Sitwell

“The hard soil and four months of snow make the inhabitants of the northern temperate zone wiser and abler than his fellow who enjoys the fixed smile of the tropics. ” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.” –Pietro Aretino

And here I write

In a winter cold

With the temperature outside

12%

Why?

Why not?

For in the cold

I remember the parts of life

That are warm

The hand of a loved one

The taste of

Homemade soup

Homemade bread

Cuddling in a warm comforter

Watching a favorite.

I feel

I sense

The warmth

Because I am loved

By the people in my life

By God!
