100 Word Song: Take to the Sky

The winter blues are vexing.

When good emerges it gets buried under the heaviness of blankets needed for warmth, needed for sleep. 

Sometimes winter’s sky is brighter.  The sun reflects its light off of the snow—a false sense of security. 

Maybe some of the blankets can be put back into storage?

Nevertheless, the temperature drops. 

It’s like when you feel accomplished and your mom calls asking, “When are you going to do something with your life?”

You want to run to the safety of your blanket cocoon.

Choose to look up.

Sometimes, beyond the naked trees, there shines blue.


Participating in 100 Word Song found at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog.  Basically, there's a song, you write 100 words inspired by said song and share it on your blog.  Today's song is Take to the Sky by Tori Amos.


  1. Nice!! I'm glad the song choice (and pic!) inspired you! I frequently talk to friends about the "naked trees" since I moved to the East Coast from a place with no seasons, and can really relate to this piece.

    1. Thank you! Enjoyed visiting your blog today!

  2. Beautiful post and super helpful to a person like me who often gets the winter blues. Love it!

    1. I am glad you like it and find some help in it. I, too, can get those blues and I love, love, love blankets!

  3. As I sit hear watching the blizzard blow by, I feel the "good emerging" you spoke of, and feel as if that it might be warm enough, that not so many blankets will be needed.

    This was a lovely entry Kimberly - keep looking up =)

  4. You described it so well. Winter blues, wrapped in blankets, waiting for that patch of blue sky. Loved it.
