Down Fall

Within the warmth of home, I sit amazed at the gentle fall of snow through window pane. Cup of tea in hand, my layered thoughts unchain, and tumble from the tip of tongue unfazed to land upon a pristine page appraised, aided by the silent fall through snowy pane. Oh, the soft white wintry glow 'pon the lane leaves a graceful drape, Lord be praised. Within the warmth of home, I muse on themes of days to come and those gone bye and so, I thank the Lord for all of nature's schemes, for the gift of time, for peace, and for the snow. Oh, make the blanket deep, I wish to dream, may all my days and 'morrows have this glow.

Very spiritual poem, Debbie. I like the vibe of it because of the metaphor of the snow as a cleansing agent. A pure renewal of the soul, if you will. Beautiful poem though. You are a very talented poetess. Mad props to you. Much love and respect. RW
