Ma Nature is Listening
Two mornings of
defrosting the horse waterers with my hair dryer,
coaxing the water pump to work,
walking the dogs in the cold, biting wind,
breaking ice out of the water buckets,
and carrying extra hay to sheep,
had me questioning my love of winter.
Then, the wind died down last night,
the stars came out,
the almost-full moon illuminated the ice crystals on the ground,
I was surrounded by thousands of twinkling lights,
and I loved winter once again.
