Soft Blanket

Snowflakes twirl  from above
like soft feathers floating down
gently they touch the cheek

white translucent particles
melt as it contacts warm skin
pristine crystals upon eyelashes

cold penetrates
frayed by undying winds
 frost bite begins to sting

salt forms in the eyes
 blueness upon the lips
cold faintly creeps in.

elements awakened
soft white blanket
over the earthly shell

    You have captured snow falling so well, Phyllis. There is something magical about snow. // Barry

    Phyl you never cease to amaze me with your lovely poems. You truly have a gift and the picture you paint here is enchanting. It makes me think of my garden out back covered by the soft white blanket of snow. Great job. God Bless, JB
