Sun Through Winter Trees

Sun cuts low through trees
Squirrels burrow under roots
People chase daylight
Winter solstice then Christmas
Hibernation ~ if only ~

    1. So I take it that you’ll be hibernating from people in order to enjoy winter! For me, when the weather is grim and almost everyone that you meet is in a bad mood, my favourite moment is pulling the curtains in the evening and shutting out the world.
