Light Years

Bright snow, bright moon
Mornings of bright breath beside mine
Such aching, such light

Though I've shown up here less this last year, Landing on Cloudy Water is still a special place for me, as are all of you. Thanks for your continued community and support. Here's to a spectacular, gentle, and joy-filled 2014! 
Merry Christmas!

    This is a fine photograph; the beauty and simplicity of winter.

    1. Yes: part of the cold and the winter is its simplicity, isn't it? I'm thankful for the way it keeps us inside under blankets, close to each other.

      I hope you have a wonderful, blessed Christmas, Richard!
