here in december

it feels like the confetti
of rain
here is december
running in any weather

the sky is celebrating
a happiness so deep in my chest
beauty is everywhere
and almost blinding

tears come easily now
i don't mind
(the rain hides them anyway)
in pines and cedars
the mush of old leaves
under so many silent steps

here in fog. in mud.
in the soggiest of grass.
here in winter.

i have never been so warm.

What I really miss about W.S. is the reward of seeing the mountains on a clear day in the winter after days of rain. It doesn't get better than that.

We're planning to be back for a visit in February. Let's get together then!

(And about that secret ... I'm on the edge of my seat ... do tell!!)
