Andes—A Home in the Sky
Frigid air, soft downy snow, steel gray skies, cozy wood heat,
creamy hot chocolate, warm brandy… home.
Fluttering wings, mating birdsong, bulbs peeking through snow
and softening earth, warming sunshine…hope.
Lush mountains, fluffy clouds, brilliant sunshine,
the boom and crack of thunder, exhilarating showers,
stunning rainbows, barbecue …family.
Vibrant reds, warm yellows, sober browns, fresh air,
decaying leaves, bonfires, crisp apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, hot Cider… peace.
