"My Sleeping Forest"


The snow has covered my sleeping forest with a blanket.


Listen to the silence. shhhhhh,, be very quiet.

Sometimes I can hear the sound of the snow
falling from the branches,,,
and sailing through the air,
and then it goes PLOP, onto the earth below.

Sometimes I hear birds tweet.
Sometimes I hear the sound of wings flapping above my head.
Sometimes I hear the squirrels chattering.
Sometimes I see those naughty rabbits running into the thicket ,
with carrots from my winter garden.
The wind is howling in my ears, like coyote songs.
I will sit here quietly,
counting snow drops.
and watch the forest sleep.
Nitey nite my friends.
love
tweedles

Tweedles you look beautiful in the snow! It is so quiet in our woods too. But I can hear the wind blow through the trees and I hear their groans as they are awakened when it tries to move them....I know it's their time to rest but I can't wait for spring.

Dear Tweedles, your posts always warm my heart. I would gladly sit quietly with you and count the snowflakes.

Your pal, Pip

You need our bubble Tweedles.
Love snow, hate the cold. Good to see you have your coat on. Maybe boots would keep your toes snug. But then you might get snow in them anyway. Good to see and hear you talking in the forest again :-)
Lots of love AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM :-)XXX
If you want the bubble back, you might have to gve me a bit of warning as I know it is floating around and other people keep borrowing it X

Tweedles,

Your snow covered forest is beautiful. How wonderful it must be to live in such a place as you do. So serene. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Winter thoughts.

I must go outback and check to see if Mr or Mrs. Bunny dug a den under our back shed as they did last year at about this time.

Happy Weekend.

I love the image of the sleeping forest, rejuvenating itself for springtime when green will spring from the ground and the branches again. You are so beautiful out in your sleeping forest, Tweedles.
