advent {day 1}


The first gift of December,

a light sprinkling of snow on my tiny garden tree,

a red fox sprinting through the yard as we pulled into the driveway,

a rabbit that got away, this time,

the quiet sound of a winter night,

breathing in the scent of cold and snow and ice,

the lovely glow of fairy lights.




I am joining Debi over at emmatree and Graciel over at evenstar art
with a daily Advent Calendar post. Join us?
