Winter is Here and Gone

by Betty

It’s beginning to feel like winter

everywhere you look.

The nearby mountains are

                covered with snow, top

                to bottom.

One feels it in the valley

                and in the bones

The tall pine trees along the

                way

Glisten with rain drops and

                ice

Puddles are scattered over

                the streets

Yards are covered with wet

                mud

                bird baths frozen solid

The dry Rillito River is running

                of flashing waters.

Pictures of snow men with

                carrot from a nose

                flashes in mind

Snowballs fly from everywhere

                while snow angels with

                wings lie nearby

People hurry about bundled

                up in coats from long

                ago

Knitted wool caps cover

                the heads

A fire in the fireplace

                sounds good

So does a book lying

                near by

Winter on the desert is rare

it doesn’t stay long so

                enjoy it while its there.
