snow and ice

I look at nature and see the beauty
of ice frozen on pine needles,
of a golden sunrise reflecting off the snow, and
of tracks from a nighttime visitor dotting the snow-covered road.

But, I know for that nighttime visitor
life is about survival.
And while the snow is beautiful
it makes life more difficult for some, and
easier for others.

Nature is balance.
Warmth for some in the summer,
cold for some in the winter.
It would serve us well
if from nature we learn balance.
