December – Christine E. Ray

I put on George Winston’s
December album
and realize why I chose it
it speaks to me
of solitary walks
through snowy woods
the silence almost complete
this music is the stark
white landscape
the soundtrack of my introspection
I can almost see
the notes hover in the air
as I travel alone
layered in my winter warmest
my bright red knit hat
the only color for miles

  1. I also love George Winston’s December, his notes DO hover in the air! Your words leave a happy image in my mind, a painting of sorts…”bright red knit hat” in an otherwise white landscape. 🙂
