Winter Night in Colorado


Our first snow of the season started around 11 this morning. It is still coming down. Big white flakes like downy feathers. Things get awfully quiet up here. Not a yip from the rogue coyote pack that whines and barks after the midnight train. Not a single moo from the lone cow we’ve heard every evening since June. The air has changed; and the moon is cold; and with all this quiet white, comes the urge to pull things close, draw inward, and drift off to sleep.

Night, world.❄

  1. So vivid and inviting. Thanks for taking a peek out your window and sharing the arrival of weather worthy of ‘a long winters’ nap.’
