Sunlight on deep snow
Bright red cardinal on the branch
Thaws the frozen heart
— — — —
It is cold and the snow is deep around me. In places the piles reach far above my head. It is still below freezing, but the sun feels warm. A cardinal flits amongst the branches of a shrub, it’s bright red jumping out against the bright white. On this February the 14th I think it is a great metaphor for the holiday. Happy Valentine’s Day!
(Sorry, no photos of the cardinal in the snow – I’ll try to get one later. And top photo is from two years ago – new snow photos coming soon!)
