Winter's Stillness

I stuck my head out the back door today and to my surprise the air was mild, the snow cover almost undisturbed, but most wondrous of all was the stillness. No sounds, just quietness, as if the snow had swallowed up all the shrillness of the current political campaigns, the blare of combat in various areas of the world, nothing but the hush and peace of a winter day.

View of the driveway. There are still a few oak leaves peeking out from behind the pine trees.

Between the chicken coop and the shed.
Branches heavy with snow.
