Soft White Flakes

Dec 4, 2019 · 1 min read

Splattering snowflakes float in the air
Soft white patches form on the ground
Flakes slowly sticking on leafy trees,
Shrill swirling winds blowing strong
Distant sun visible with guarded rays.

Winter cold cuts through my bones
As I trudge along in deepening snow,
Larger flakes nestle against my face
Pleasure taken in this cold respite
Panoramic beauty of landscaped snow.

Thoughts wander wistfully through my mind
Memories of cozy cabins with warm fires
Rough hewn timbers in vaulted ceilings,
Continuing my hike in steadily falling snow
Snow covered sidewalks, deserted cityscape.

My body is cold, warm spirit aglow,
Soft white flakes fall faster now,
Feeling at one with nature’s grace.
