Winter's Blanket



Stained glass wings rest in awe
Neath velvet quilt of fallen of snow

Swallowtail and commas caressed
A peaceful reverence for winter’s show

Orion prances through the night
Stirring up the dust of stars

As angels weave their guilded-white
Earthbound cloak from afar


Written for Gail Doyle’s Contest “Winter’s Blanket”

*Black Swallowtail and Commas are 2 species of Ohio butterflies

Wishing all my friends here a very special Thanksgiving!
