I step forward
Feeling the cold sneak through my many garments
And enter through my skin.
I shiver as I walk,
Hearing the crunch of crisp grass
Shattering the frosted blades with each step.
The cold pricks and tickles me
Gradually numbing my fingertips and toes.
I shiver and stop,
Beholding the beauty of it all;
The sun gleams down
Upon a world shrouded in mystery
A world under a thin woolly blanket,
Glistening and majestic.
I breathe in
Feeling the fresh new day envelope me.
I hold onto the moment,
For that is all there is.
