Whiteout

On the top of a hill
We traced our journey here,
Tracks through a virgin snow
Ribboned away and disappeared.

On the top of a cloud
The sun softly rolled
Then fell into cobalt blue.
Hills of white seemed to race away
Like the ripples on a pond.
We traced our names in the snow
And continued across the meadow.
The journey here we shared,
Tracks of deer and fox
Reminded us we were guests.

Through a virgin innocence,
Snow blanketed our senses 
With a deafening quiet.
Soldier lines of birches
Drew long thin shadows
Like soft grey ribbons
On the white damask landscape.
Away from the jagged edge of reality,
We escaped to this wonderful peace
And disappeared...


For Anthony's whiteness contest
Inspired by Debbie G's "etcetera form"

    Ahh! Enjoyed reading this creative work..Reads like a winner to me.Thanks for stopping by my blog.I have a Gateway laptop computer.I could take it to the place that I bought it and see if they had a cord or would look it up or write down what I need to order it myself but I just did not want to make that trip.I asked the place that I bought it about the battery and they said they did not carry them.They said just go online.Youth doesn't understand sometimes for the elderly it isn't that easy.SK

    Beautiful poetry with such a calm soothing imagery painted. Loved the read. About your comment on my 'Journey through dreams' that if we could remember prenatal times when probed with some stimulus, I'd agree with you that ignorance is bliss here!
