Moonlit Peace

Like fingers, lovely birch tree shadows play
on virgin snow like hands upon a sheet;
so bright the moon, it seems like light of day,
yet stars among the forest's members peek.

And ... while my love lies pleasantly at rest,
I dream awake and contemplate my muse,
enraptured by this scene on winter's breast,
where thoughts are drawn and peacefully diffused
.
So now, I look upon the face of time
and all my years of life become but one.
In timelessness I feel my spirits climb,
where thoughts of love and life can laugh and run.

Like fingers, lovely birch tree shadows play
on virgin snow, like hands upon a sheet.

English Sonnet

I so much enjoy reading your well composed sonnets, Craig. I can only admire the flow of words and the meter of your verse, and do my best to learn from it. A fave. T.J
