Winter

.
.
Bright winter light is dim
.
Small tasks become hard work
.
And memories paid in effort grim
.
Dare long for the  heat of sweaty July
.
That turgid lethargy thick movement
.
Blessed cooling rain a wish
Then too wish now winter’s test
.
Endure and endure
 .
To survive is to be yet blest
.
Too bold or hopeless plan
.
Think of Spring and growth
.
All winter tending care 
.
Spring’s fragile yearning germ
.
Remember heavy September indigo
.
And golden October sky
.
When this ancient no color cold
.
Was only anticipated Winter Rest

Foggy October Moonlight

The bright October Moonlight is so bright it illuminates  the  foggy clouds creating shadows of the tree cover.

Through the trees lighted windows offer respite in the shadowed darkness.
