Wake up, eyeballs
I miss green frogs and pink flowers.
I miss yellow goldfinches, as they are more brown in winter.
I miss orange and black monarch butterflies and red....anything red.
The purple coneflowers are cut back and slumbering under the frozen ground. I miss them too.
I miss my blue summer purse and coral-colored spring sweater.
It's like my eyeballs search and search for something bright and colorful, but as the earth wears muted shades of grays and browns....so do we. What is with that? Maybe now is the time we ought to be putting up the Christmas lights, as we need them more now than at the holidays.
Even the colorful Mr. Cuddles is hiding under 2 inches of ice. Sigh.
While some complain about the absence of the sun....I'm missing color. Just some sort of color.
What do you miss most in winter?
