This is winter in Oregon.

Gray skies, patches of green.DSC_0018

Far-off hills wrestling with fog

As the sun says goodbye.

Tall grasses bend with the weight of the wet

Red-bellied roundness beside them.

Crystal-fire, of raindrops on rosehips

Clear water comes dripping to earth.

Tall bearded trees reach into the water

Holding the sunlight prisoner.

Colors are dying and growing old,

Fading in the wetlands.

This message was brought to you by a few moments of silence from this cute little face. I’m sure you’re all thankful.
