Smiling snow

on my way
for my morning walk
today’s treat
a street and pavement
covered  with snow

for me
a break for a while
something comes  my way
while passing by

I watch Buddha
in his little garden
sitting in the corner
on the edge of his square pond

today
a thought crosses my mind
I really try
but I can not remember
the day  he wasn't there

Buddha
made out of grey stone
covered with snow
sharing  his presence
he doesn't talk
he looks small
he tells so much
his is so great 

HE showed a miracle
he made the snow smile
all over his face

    TY Shawod for taking the to time to read and comment my poem. I wrote this one last year.. your comment brought back such nice memories.. the dog I walk with we had to put down just a week before his 'meant to be' play-mate would 'enter' our 'premises" (a home is more than just a home...) Dutch greetings Elly

    this is a charming DELIGHT to see. I love when a poet takes a simple object and just writes about it in such an eloquent manner, especially the last part how you say he made the snow smile. A FAVE upon this one!!!
