beaded trout

We circle the tipi one time

In a single file without words Each of us with our own separate thoughts. You're in your world and I'm in mine.

The night air is chilled ~ our breaths in visible cottony puffs.

An inch layer of snow covers the nightscape.

A hazy winter moon rests near the horizon.

And the warmth of the fire draws us within.
