Winter is the coldest season of the year. Containing the shortest day and the longest night, it suggests inactivity and decay. However, some would say that winter is beautiful unto itself, fresh and invigorating. Others would add that winter brings greater appreciation for summer. That trials and rest periods give birth to growth and energy. Seasons of change are coming. Share your interpretation, literal or symbolic, of WINTER with words or images.
