The slow time has now begun, when
flakes the size of quarters fall
adrift on gentle breezes again
filling the hollows in stone walls. 

In insular suspense we see
the slow time has now begun, when
snowfall nuzzles the trunks of trees,
blankets the fields, lies in the glen. 

A time for sleep, a resting den
get out the the books and records,
the slow time has now begun, when
the stacks of wood are piled in cords.

Yes, slow time has begun, she yawns
and pulls the covers to her chin,
back to sleep until the dawn for
the slow time has now begun, amen.

    We are getting some snowfall right now as I type these words. Your poem describes snow and winter in a fanciful way. Good work as usual Debbie.

    :) Lovely... oh, I remember slow time, lol... I think I have about ten years before I experience that again... if for a contest, should top it. If for just you, should sooth you. If just because, will delight all readers. Now, tag.

    Lovely write, Debs! I think I should have stayed in hibernation for the snow here is very icy and deep. Nick caught me crying...I NEVER EVER wish to cry in front of my children.:( When I saw his eyes fill up with tears, I felt even worse. Mommies are supposed to be STRONG. He got off the chair he'd pulled up next to me and went into the washroom honking his nose " pulls the covers to her chin, back to sleep until the dawn" sound advise.:) Love, Mikki
