Winter's Blanket

With an expectant face turned skyward,
comes a gentle quality that is heard.
Breathing in the crispness all its own,
I watch the hypnotic falling snow.

I smile as delicate feather soft flakes,
drift to sweetly kiss lashes and face.
With my cheeks a cold blushing glow,
a calmness in me begins to grow.

Delivering a blanket of fresh fallen white,
lace upon lace, builds a quilt of ice.
Standing still, I listen intently,
to the soft "hush" when snow falls gently.

    You can paint a scene and present feelings with seemingly little effort. That is a great talent, indeed.

    Hullo, Paula. I enjoyed how you highlighted the calm, gentle, softly falling snow....that is my favourite type of snowfall; the gentle, calm snow, compared to the super-windy, horizontally-blowing, stinging snowfall(lol). I hope you are doing ok. A VERY belated blessing towards a healthy, prosperous 2013~!
