A Dear Visit

A whistle blown
Eyes drawn 
Vigilance escorted silence
Stillness plagued the distance

A woman sewing 
Sat on her rocking chair; swaying
She looked out the window 
And realized the sudden billow 
She smiled wittingly  
 And continued sewing quickly
But, a memory hit her head
Where she drifted into the past…

A lake stood by her side
A breeze made her rule the world
Leaves fell to the ground 
As they willingly bowed
A glimpse was sent to scan
Nature’s new fan…
The glimpse returned with a letter in its hand
Revealing the visitor’s sincere stand…
It read: 
“Hello dearest one,
My leave was necessary then
For I had to rest
And hibernate 
Yet, I woke up last night
And realized that I missed you a lot
I come today as a visitor knocking on your door
Hoping you’d invite me in to your house once more
                                                          Sincerely, Winter…”
A knock awoke the woman back to the present
She looked down at her hand with deep intent…

She held the sewn gift tightly
And moved towards the door tenderly
She smiled when she saw her dear friend once more
Knocking on her door

“Hello dear one,” said the woman
“Hello Nature,” said her friend
“Do come in Winter,” said Nature
And laid the scarf she’d sewn on her shoulders…

    Sara, this is a wonderful piece of writing, full of amazing imagery. I am a great believer in the soul/spirit that exists in every aspect of nature, including those things we deem as not living. Nigel
