Sauna weather

It’s the tail end

Of the Christmas holidays;


Mainly grey and mild —

But we finally got some cold weather.


Frosted snowflakes

Decorate the wall and window of the

Little sauna house on the lake.


When the sun finally showed its face,

The view was gloriously peachy.

The elegance of winter

A couple of weeks ago, we had a lovely snowfall

And I got to enjoy berries wearing a Santa hat.


The dried seed pods

Glowed like lace in the sunlight

Golden thistles

And delicate diamonds

Glittered on slender stems.

Even the snowballs on the frozen lake

Looked like pearls.

But my favourite sight – as always –

Are snowflakes of joy.

March delight

Sunny days and freezing nights

Create March magic:

Sparkling snowflakes,

Trees dressed in frosty crystals

And melting snowy spikes

That freeze the face and cause delight.

Wintry pastels

As you probably know by now, I love colour and light,

But they are not always possible to find.

A mild winter means getting to love the pastels of grey, as soft as silk;

The muted browns of sky and land;

And the dance of twirling snowflakes

When an Arctic storm rages in.

We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.  — Chekov

And sometimes, we find all three things in one:

A dog

Draped in a necklace of snowflakes.
