Today the soft snow fell silently~by David Christian


 

 

Today the soft snow fell silently

Today the soft snow fell silently
Quietly it surrounds my home
Gone the youthfulness of green grass
Musing memories of warmer days
Summer recedes into shadows
Will the darkening hues of autumn return?
How can I experience the beauty in winter?
Chilly days shelters me from the cold
Absent scents are missing
Refreshing smells of spring
What face of beauty is seen in a winter’s cold?
Housed in warmth
Viewed from a frosty window
I see the beauty of snow
The white-brightness of muted silence
Reflected brightness penetrates
The lingering thoughts of yesterday
One whiteness blankets everything
A simply softness of icy stillness
Recalling a renewal of nature
Life is waiting for a promise of tomorrow
