~ A step into Winter.


There's a certain Slant of light,
Winter Afternoons -
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes -



 Heavenly Hurt, it gives us -
We can find no scar,
But internal difference,
Where the Meanings, are -



None may teach it - Any -
'Tis the Seal Despair -
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the Air -




When it comes, the Landscape listens -
Shadows - hold their breath -
When it goes, 'tis like the Distance
On the look of Death -

Emily Dickinson, J258 (1861) 




•❆•*´¨`*•❆•*´¨`*•❆•*´¨`*•❆•



Like Brooms of Steel
The Snow and Wind
Had swept the Winter Street -



The House was hooked
The Sun sent out
Faint Deputies of Heat -












Where rode the Bird
The Silence tied
His ample - plodding Steed


The Apple in the Cellar snug
Was all the one that played.


Emily Dickinson, J1252 (1873) 







•❆•*´¨`*•❆•*´¨`*•❆•*´¨`*•❆•


Water, is taught by thirst.
Land - by the oceans passed.
Transport - by throe -
Peace - by it's battles told -
Love, by memorial mold -
Birds, by the snow.

Emily Dickinson, J135 ( 1859)



I recorded this video a few years ago at the window of my kitchen during a heavy snowfall




And let me close this post of mine with one last poem by Emily Dickinson, dedicated to all those friends of mine which have a deep sensitivity ....


Nature - sometimes sears a Sapling -
Sometimes - scalps a Tree -
Her Green People recollect it
When they do not die -
Fainter Leaves - to Further Seasons -
Dumbly testify -
We - who have the Souls -
Die oftener - Not so vitally -


Emily Dickinson, J314 (1862) 




With my heart filled with gratitude, I'm awaiting you ...

see you soon 💕

Vi è un'indubbia Inclinazione della luce,

Nei Meriggi d'Inverno -

Che opprime come gli Accordi

Di un'Austera Cattedrale -



- fotografia 1

Ci reca una Celeste Piaga -

Non possiamo trovarne alcun segno,

Ma una differenza interiore,

Che giace laddove stanno i Significati -




- fotografia 3

Nessuno la può insegnare -

Essa è il Sigillo dell'Angoscia -

Un'afflizione solenne

Inviataci dall'Aria -

Quando arriva, il Paesaggio ascolta -

Le Ombre - trattengono il fiato -

Quando se ne va, ci appare come la Distanza

Nello sguardo della Morte - 


Emily Dickinson, J258 (1861)

L'acqua ci è insegnata dalla sete.

La terra, dagli oceani traversati.

L'estasi, dallo spasimo.

La pace, dai suoi racconti di battaglie.

L'amore, dalla forma di un ritratto.

Gli uccelli, dalla neve. 


Emily Dickinson, J135 ( 1859)





- VIDEO che registrai qualche anno fa alla finestra della mia cucina durante un'abbondante nevicata.




E permettetemi di chiudere questo mio post con un ultimo poesia di Emily Dickinson, dedicata a tutti quegli amici e lettori dotati di una profonda sensibilità ....


La Natura - talvolta avvizzisce un Alberello -

Talaltra - schioma un Albero -

Il Suo Popolo Verde se ne rammenta

Quando non muore -

Foglie Languide - di Stagioni a Venire -

Taciturne testimoniano -

Noi - che abbiano l'Anima -

Moriamo più sovente - Non in modo così vitale -


Emily Dickinson, J314 (1862) 




Con il cuore colmo di gratitudine, vi aspetto ....

A presto 💕

      certo che vi conservate bene con certe temperature, mia cara !

      Scherzi a parte anche qui oggi il termometro è salito di poco sopra lo zero anche durante le ore più calde del giorno e da metà pomeriggio la colonnina è scesa sotto ... il cielo sembra uno specchio, ma forse è proprio questo il motivo del freddo così secco.

      Ti abbraccio con tutto il cuore,
      spero che tu abbia trascorso comunque una giornata allietata dal tuo hobby preferito ...

      mia dolce, dolcissima amica, a me sembra un sogno averti qui !

      Ho sentito alla TV che il centro della penisola è da giorni stretto nella morsa del gelo, anche qui le temperature sono scese, ma non così tanto ... qui è stato particolarmente freddo ieri mattina, ma poi il sole ha riscaldato l'aria, anche se all'ombra non siamo saliti oltre lo zero ... il fatto è che senza vento il freddo secco lo si avverte molto meno e lo si sopporta decisamente meglio, sul mare è tremendo anche a temperature più alte !

  12. Hi Dany,
    What wonderful winter photos! It really is such a beautiful time of year but I do mind the cold temperatures! If only we could enjoy the beauty of snow with much warmer weather! ;) we had several snowstorms in December, a little snow this month. Last year we didn't have any snow all winter so I've been looking forward to some. I do love a winter wonderland! I loved your video, what a flurry of activity at the bird feeder! You must be feeding them something extra special as they looked like they didn't have plans to leave anytime soon. Lol! Beautiful post, Dany! Happy New Year! Sending love and best wishes for 2017!

  18. Oh Dany these are absolutely Gorgeous pictures of your winter, I love the frozen ice on them, my husband would be so jealous he is trying to get pictures like that :) The one with the lady in a dress is that you? That is just beautiful the way the layering and pleating. Your bird video is so neat, I love watching birds, and it looks like yours is nestled right in the trees I bet they love that, ours is in the middle of our yard so they have a ways to go to get back to their trees so we see them flying back and forth.

      The story of that photo is quite fun ... I found it on the web a few months ago and I decided to sew a dress like that by myself for having a Winter shot that could be similar to it, actually I loved it since I first saw it .... the early morning when I decided to catch the frozen ice and the light snowfall I was alone at home, alas ! So I though to post the original image which is by 'Trevillon', since nobody could take a photo to me with my 'new' gown ツ !

    Such lovely scenes of winter you have shared with the beautiful poetry of Emily Dickinson. Winter's stark beauty can only be appreciated behind warm, woolly scarves and through the windows of cozy rooms and we can be very grateful for both! The little birds must be also grateful for your sweet kindness! We are expecting more snow tonight, but it is promised to melt quickly and we will have a warmer week to contemplate these short January days. Wishing you sweet blessings and sunshine on these cold winter days ahead! Hugs xo Karen

    This is such a peaceful and lovely post.....
    Loved your bird video, it is fascinating, so much activity....
    I marvel that those tiny creatures don't freeze too death, but
    all those feathers must insulate them far better than one could
    imagine.........I always wonder where they go to get warm....
    Hope this find you doing well and keeping warm.
    Happy New year to you hon,

      I also wonder how so little birds cannot die when flying during such cold and icy days ... as for where they go and keep warm themselves, I may assure you that each of them has its own place, or amongst the stones of the walls of our home ( they're almost 1 m. thick outside ) or on the beam above the door of the cellar where we have the wood boiler or even inside the cellar, from which they come out in the morning when we open the door for the first time to feed the boiler ... they're such lovely creatures, aren't they ?

      Thanking you again and again,
      I'm sending blessings on the New Year just begun and on your weekend ahead,
      may it be filled with joy, love and wonder ༺♡❀♡༻

      too many praises, Sweetie, I don't deserve them ... !

      When you see so many birds all at once it means that it's very cold and that they're filling their stomach with the greatest amount of food they can for not to come back until the snow ends to fall, or at least until the next day !

      Your words of appreciaton are a so welcome blessing to my heart, for sure this Winter we haven't short periods of deep cold and than periods of mild temperatures alternated, as it's usual, we have so much sun, for the moment maybe more than the last years, but we're always below zero, during the day we may reach 2 or 3 degrees, not more !
