The winter wind breathed new life into nature today.
I felt it in my being as well as on my face as it lashed my curls against it with a soft sting. As I ran it pushed its invisible force against me, one moment a help, the next a hinderance.
I heard it as it rushed past my ears with a sound that brought to mind fast-moving water.
I saw it in the lake as it ripples fanned out in every possible direction. The birds were playing on the vents, soaring up and then diving down. It made wispy tails which curled off of the gray and white clouds as they rapidly raced across the sky.
In the distance snow is falling on the mountains once again.
