The school bus goes by our place long before the sun is really up.
Watching time move throughout the day is truly a glory. The first tinge of sunlight appears long after the world has woken and headed to work, or school, or shopping, or….
Quickly, ever so rapidly the daylight brightens,
then with high speed starts
the swift descent into night
Not long now before the shortest day of the year. Gratefully we will move forward into flourishing daylight and raw, impressive cold temperatures, which will billow into
Whispering, creaking ice…but at least the days will grow longer.
And THAT will be a very good thing.
