In the Hush of Snowflakes

20180204_121624

The earth exhales wisps of breath, in the hush of snowflakes,

as peace descends in the wind, but lives deep within us too

in our own breath

as we look up

and taste the snow

on our lips.

The Quiet Still Held by Winter

20180204_121758

With our spirits gently drifting within and through

the snowfall,

our words will give shape

to our meditation,

even a poem worthy

of silent reflection,

in the quiet

still held by winter.

The Quiet Moments of Winter III

100_5679

In the moonlight through our window, we hold each other closer

breathing in her hair, I can see the outline of trees covered

again. She whispers in the night, “I’ve always wanted

to be held by you…..” I drift off dreaming

of the wind carrying us away.

Is love softer in the winter snow?
