Snow and Sun

Freshly Fallen Snow

freshly fallen snow











Way tucked away beyond the eyes

The earth a vestige in disguise

The trees with dulcet sugar crests

Enraptured by a snowy flesh

As sunbeams glow in lithe reprise


Betwixt the bowers; scintillant,

The sun’s resplendent filament

Where shadows die, absolved by light,

The limbus of the trees ignite

idyllically so radiant.


At dusk when branches fall and break

The skies are gray; a touch opaque,

So Rich with candor wet with passion

The air in crystals, steady crashing,

And tragedy its grace will make


Then morning starts off prominent

we reconcile the elements

then burdened we with two ranges

shovel now or snow angels

each in service of the firmament


Listen close and you will hear

The kiss of snow on branches clear

the sun emits a certain warm

thwarting ice that threatens harm

we hope the sun will reappear


But in the fields of fallen snow

Each footstep we construct will show

though the nights when snow is comfy snug

And like a quilt to branches hug

our souls are lit with fires glow.


But deep within the winter foam

You’ll find a place that no one knows

A place among the snowdrift wide

Where all the magic goes to hide

A place you’re ever calling home.

    Beautiful, descriptive talent which grows more obvious the more you write, my friend. Here, in each passing form, your painting takes a portrait of its own, while adding immeasurably to the picture as a whole. You “drew” me in, as I totally enjoyed this, awaiting with baited breath (I have a cold lol) each syllabic feast.
