People look warmer in the winter,

Cheeks pinker, lips redder,

And skin tones dark against the constant white backdrop.

The lone hiker on a snowy mountainside is a bright smear of paint

on a black and white photograph.

Spring is a phantasmagorical landscape.

colors, and textures, and light-

compete for first place in your vision.

But winter is a minimalist.

On ski slopes,

and muffled roads,

We are anomalies of color.
