Significant Changes

Appreciate the panes and plastic that
Separate and divide the warm and cold.
The few small differences are insignificant:
The author of my text has been replaced.
Candlelight flickers still, on shrinking wick.
Look through the glass... see tragic,
Naked trees transformed
From shades of green by storms.
Progressive: red, orange, yellow, and brown,
In endless shifting gray they drown.
Color is the breath of feeling.
Feeling is the substance of atmosphere.
Significant changes, after all adhere.
Suddenly I shiver, blink, then stare.
Changed to white!  Behold! 'Tis fair.
