We (Will Seem to) Pause for a Little Spell—Wednesday, December 23, 2020

Today we are in the shift…from the longest night of the year, where darkness drags on and on

Where shadows grow long early in the day

and swirl heavily into the evening

But gradually, ever so slowly, the daylight hours will stretch

(Coyote visiting our yard 😦 )

And the night time minutes grow shorter and shorter

Sunlight will stretch a few seconds longer and longer each and every day

Until the seconds become minutes

Then the minutes will become an hour

At which time we reach Daylight Saving time, where we have a full hour added to our daily Sunlight

But even though the days grow longer,

For two full months, January and February

The days will grow colder and colder

Hopefully with moisture

Called snow.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. This time of year is a challenge for us…so dark and dreary some days, today we have a blizzard. Only snow no sun and it is cold. Good thing we can stay home today…I may shovel some later.
    Merry Christmas!! 🙂


  2. I like it that the day are now starting to grow longer — I just want them to grow warmer, but that’s going to have to wait a while. I hope you get a good amount of moisture over the next two months.
