Winter Rhapsody



Winter though harsh and frigid holds a certain beauty
Ice frozen fingers grasp hold of my soul
Nothing is more exquisite than pristine snow falling
Today graceful, fragile snowflakes are drifting
Everything is white, fresh, pure and flawless
Rivers are ice covered, dense and firm 

Rhapsody is the song of the winter birds
Hopping on bare branches to sing
All is still and surreal in my snowy world
Perhaps, I will go for a walk . . . 
Something is calling deeply to my very soul
Outside is God's perfection it says
Deep under the snow life is waiting to renew
Yet, this frozen world holds a certain beauty for me



Acrostic

    I like the last stanza. Nature, indeed, recycles beauty. Beauty above and beauty below waiting to spring upward. Enjoyed your winter wonderland.

    Nicely penned Constance - this morning we have a little snow on the ground so this piece is more appropriate and reminds me to feed my chickadees =)

    Dear Constance, Dear Heart, Hope this finds YOU and YOURS Healthy and High in the Spirit. I am in full agreement With this exquisite Pen YOU should have seen Winter come in on the Mountain, watch the snowflakes racing to the village below LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry
