Winter's Blanket

Quiet midnight stroll
Footprints vanish instantly 
From silver pathways

Opalescent lights
A thousand diamonds clinging
To frosted branches

Tiny clouds of breath 
Mingling with chimney smoke
Stars peek through the haze

Candlelit windows
Incandescent pools of light
Banish blue shadows 
Slumbering houses 
Silent streets tucked into night
With blankets of snow.
