Simple blessings


Stillness filled the air where only the crunch of footsteps could be heard in the silent whiteness of the fresh fallen snow.    


An icy blanket coating the once fluffy flakes nestled between frozen earth and stormy sky.


Under the shelter of frozen finger like branches fragile feathered winged ones gather seed where they may.


Standing in this beauty witnessing breath merge with cold crisp air peace and acceptance are everywhere.


Against the stark white canvas it becomes clear

there are no empty spaces not even in the air.


What a sweet spot this picture of frozen terrain

Just outside this thin windowpane.


Profound simple blessings in this moment of now.
