A Winter's night observed

A Winter’s night observed by: Steven Hudson Tranquility mounts in the silence of the moment, Snow glistens from the branches of a full moonlight Contrasting darkness’s shadowy backdrop, A gentle calm breeze permeates the air, Stillness, listening, as this wonderland envelops you For a season an instant another land transports you Apparent breath exhaled, a machine fearfully and wonderfully made In wilderness, frozen and wild that is fearfully and wonderfully made Green boughs heavy in blankets of snowy white Black branches barren and void, form lines, into the starry night Crystals flutter, sparkle and swirl on lumined plains spread out beneath, On A winter’s night observed, a winter’s night of peace.
