Winter Receding

Winter receding

Forced back by warming water

Bringing back new life


Waiting for the Snow


Just above freezing.
Icy chill in evening air.
Waiting for the snow.

I know that many places in the northern hemisphere have already had their first snow. Here, in South Wales, it is already more than a month later than last year, and we have nothing, yet. Still, there is a chill in the air that promises really cold weather to come.
