Flowers are crying with frost tears. S.A.D. The jewelry box of flowers is closing. Heigh Ho.

The famous "Heigh-Ho" sequence from ...Image via Wikipedia
With frost comes sadness. True tears are like the frost on the petals. What does this mean? Could it be flowers are alive and now they are dying. No. It for me is the loss of color and form. Flowers and leaves provide visual creative form that I thrive on.

But what is amazing is that roses burst forth in blossom before the final freeze. Summer builds to a crescendo into the fall flame of colors.

If you have Seasonal Affective Disorder the last blooms are a depressive trigger that the dark time is coming. You sleep later. You are more pensive. You treasure the last jewels of every flower and leaf color and form.

The jewelry box of flowers is closing. I guess that is why I have been looking at my music box as more inviting for the winter snuggle. There are less cat whiskers to climb into my music box with. Even the cats are huddling in and holding their whiskers tighter.

The music box's tune is Heigh Ho from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This sustains me when the loss of the flowers cries like a loon on the lifeless glass lake.

There would be less to unwind of my day's frustrations in the music box if I could have flowers everyday.

...but the flowers are not gone...you just can't see them right now...they're hiding...waiting for the warm weather after winter has passed...so they can start to climb out of the ground, and stretch their petals to the sun!
you're like the flowers...curling up and waiting for the chill to pass. your music box...your comfort...your reminder that LIFE will eventually bring color...and warmth...again.
...FIND that color now...you don't have to lose it...you just have to look a little harder...??

Very thoughtful comment. Forgot about sleeping bulbs with future blossoms.
