There are strange and mysterious sounds
When the winds of winter blow,
The long nights are crystal clear and cold,
And the fields and meadows are covered with snow.
The stars are frosty against the sky,
And the wind’s whistle is shrill,
As the snow blows against the house
And drifts against the hill.
Yet, I like to see during the winter
A white carpet on the ground,
To plod aimlessly in the deep snow,
where deer tracks abound.
I like to feel the stillness
Of a crisp winter’s night,
Watching a full moon rise over the horizon,
Exposing a winter wonderland beautiful and bright.

Winter Wonderland by Joseph T. Renaldi

If possible, pack your lunch and go out into the wild.
Enjoy nature and leave only your footprints behind ❤

    1. It sure is ❤ I know the woods so well and know where to walk to have the most lovely experience. That's really a privilege.
      Thanks a lot!!

    1. You should have been with me one day we started out our walk in black frost. As we walked into the woods, it began to snow. The further we went, the whiter the woods.
      It’s years back now but the magic will always stay with me.
      All the best,

    1. I like your words and appreciate your point of view. I’ve been addicted to nature for some time now 🙂 🙂
      Thanks a lot for your comment!
      All the best,

Have you been out for a walk recently or is it years since the last time??
