Do you see the dull winter-gray landscape
or the muted colors of earth resting?
Do you notice the barren trees and ugly grounds
or sense the nature preparing for new life?
Do you dread the short dark afternoons
or enjoy the occasional modest glow?
Do you feel despair lurking around
or cheer on the forthcoming freshness?
Do you live separated from or as a part of
the amazing cycle of life?
