The  Blanket

How a blanket covers what is beneath depends upon its size, but when nature creates its own blanket the beauty of what’s beneath enhances the blanket itself.

The contrast of darkness covered by a brilliant white of fresh fallen snow gives the look of a winter wonderland. As the small winter birds flutter among the branches knocking clouds of snow to the ground, as like children playing on a field of fresh fallen snow as the snowballs float through the air.

Nature’s blanket covers all it touches, no tree, roof or lawn left untouched. The sun makes it glitter as each flake reflects the light from above.

Like any blanket it is tossed off. The gentle breeze removes the blanket from the trees and sheds it to the ground below, uncovering the beauty it once covered. The nakedness once again revealed for all to see.
