Erratically falling,
darting through icy air
landing imperceptibly, piling
up, up, up.
Even tempered - whitening
anything and everything
until, cascading
down, down, down
onto whatever lies below.

As the snow cover all but
the warmest things,
so does the stifling
blanket of darkness
that arrives in waves
Minutes, days, hours
lost in blank uncertainty.

Yet, the light returns.
twilight's gaze lingers
in the western sky
hugging old mountains.
Disappearing into the distance.
forever rolling away
with their promise
of longer days.

Hi Wayne,

I was checking out your website today noticed that you linked to one of my favorite articles ever: 10 Simple, Science-backed ways to be happier today.

I absolutely love that resource.

You know what? I actually set out to make something similar:
It’s 10 Simple, Science-backed ways to be happier today, but more up to date and comprehensive.

You may want to consider linking to my article from your page.

There is also a summary info-graphic at the bottom of the article if that's easier for sharing.

Either way, thanks for your time!
