Winter is the Time

Credit: Frank Brinkman
Winter in the Tetons is a place to recharge and enjoy precious moments

The winter is the time to rest and replenish your soul. The winter is time to go outside and find that patch of undisturbed snow and enjoy moments.

The winter is the time
To rest and replenish
My soul to prepare
For the intensity of springtime.

The winter is my time to be quiet
And listen to my soul.
To hear it's quakening.
To be mindful of it's fears.
To forgive foibles.
To welcome it's hopes with open joy.

The winter is time to go outside
And find that patch of undisturbed snow.
Once finding it,
Lie down facing the clouds.

Spreading my arms
Like the wings of an eagle
Moving them back and forth.

Then it is time to stand up
And look down
At my angel.

Winter is the time
To take time to take time
To have a little fun
And enjoy moments.

A reflection on winter. Some get cabin fever. Some hate the cloudy days. Some hate the cold. I found it is all about enjoying the moments of your life. Winter for me is a time of slowing down, and replenishing energies.
