Subtle Comfort


Oak Creek

The vibrancy of Spring may not be here, 
  and the color palette of Autumn is no longer near. 

The landscape is dormant and stark, 

dreary and dark. 
Cold and wet  
hard to stir the spirit 
to move beyond the comfort of warm and dry
and thoughts of long summer days gone by.

 There is an exquisite beauty in the somberness of Winter.

 The landscape is quiet and reverent, 
no boldness of color, 
but the subtle hues will draw you nearer and nearer
 to the whispering moments of 
grace.
