Todays Trip

entry picture

As the Country returns to work 
after a lengthy Christmas break
The frosty weather comes along
and surprises us as we wake

Cars are delicately patterned
covered in a white icy glaze
Standing in the chilly shadows
awaiting the warmth of sun rays 

We set off on our journey 
and soon delighted by the view
As far as our eyes can see
the land is sparkling, fresh and new

In the cloudless pale azure sky  
winter sun casts a hazy glow
Miles of rolling white fields and hills
backdropped by mountains topped with snow  

Sheep graze on frosted tufts of grass
thick, woolly fleeces keep them warm
White dusted evergreen fir trees 
wearing their Christmas uniform 

Splitting the snowy countryside 
black tarmac mapping our way
A mundane trip made special 
through this winter wonderland today

I feel cold as I read this brrrr! I love the way you conjured up the wintery scene by incorporating all the senses, Julie. Perfect!

Beautiful, Julie. I think it's coming this way. Only rain and cloud for the moment.
