Upon Waking

Awaking this morning I looked out my window to discover the view had changed during the night.

“Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.”
~Bill Morgan, Jr.

Beautiful photo. Aren't mornings like this magical?

That last line gave me a little 'feeling zinger'. I'm so glad you find and share these delights.

Your frosty photo almost makes me impatient for snow. Almost ;0)

Hi there! Thank you for visiting my site and leaving a comment. I hope you will come back soon. My Nostalgia one hasn't seem to taken hold yet but I love it anyhow.
It is so hard for me to imagine snow! Here in Arizona we just got under the 80's:)

Was this your first snow?
We have friends who have a summer place on Thousand Island Park, and they always talk about the snow in upstate NY.
Something magical about snow, isn't there.

Although we never have snow here in Phoenix, I love seeing photos of it. It always looks so quiet and peaceful.

The first morning like this is always the most magical, although I don't know if I'm quite ready to see our trees dressed in their winter white. The poem is lovely.

When the FrostSpirit visits, it is just magical.
Sometimes I a little homesick for snow.

it's so magical to see this snowy transformation overnight. the immediate hush in the air is marvelous as well. Love the poem. The simple things have such a power to bring us back to innocence.

A lovely photo and a perfect poem to whet my appetitie for winter.

It's still quite warm here, for late November, and the forecast is for another dry season.

Oh, how I long for a four foot bed of snow to replenish, soften, and quiet the world around this little cabin.

I just now responded to your comment on my 'Twas Another Lifetime' post, I've been out of town on a train trip to visit relatives.

As always, I enjoy your visits and your comments.

Thanks for stopping by my 'other blog' and commenting. Winter is not yet here...just the beginning of bone chilling cold and yet by the end of this week they are teasing us with an 'almost 60'...!

We are still waiting for our first snow. Each year, it seems to be later. What a view to wake up to!

Beautiful words, beautiful image. I was thinking of you today as I wrote in my journal and re-read all of the poems you included. Thank you for a lovely, lovely friendship & gift. :)

I thought I'd already left a comment - sorry, meant to!
That is so right about the snow bringing out the inner child. Hope your inner child is reveling and dancing!

Good morning Endment,
Nice understatement in that post. I've had fun catching up a bit on your blog. The colors of the photos sort of tell the story of the seasons. It is comforting to visit your blog again.

I'm back blogging. I'm not sure how long it will last, but I'm having fun.

My favorite time of the day...mornings! Lovely to wake up to! Nice shot!

I've been bopping around some blogs and see that certain areas are definitely getting snow. It's so beautiful--to look at--but having been born in So Cal, I've never been comfortable living in it for very long. Part of my own aging idiosyncracies include a poor tolerance to extremes of cold or heat. Have you noticed that?

Beautiful. Snow and transformation. We had our first snowfall last week. It melted, but our mornings are cold now. Winter is coming!
