The Last Evening of Winter

The sun has now set on the last evening of winter.
You can still see
a little sunlight
on the top most branches
and the remaining snow
reflects
the last of the light.

The family dog
sleeps on his bed
like he had all afternoon
even though
the sun
no longer warms his back.

In a nearby nursing home
an aging man
laments
the death of his sister
while he holds onto his hope
of going home.

On a distant road
a young family
continues their journey
to a new home
far away.

It is time
to turn off the news
and read a good book.
