The Chill Of Winters Breath

Against the velvet canvas of night the downy snow falls all around me. Silence deafening,falling upon my ears in this winter wonderland I see. The chill of winters breath places it's kiss upon rose petal skin so light. Whilst I stand 'neath tiny flakes and behold this magnificent sight. I adore the silence of this winter wonderland that only my soul does know. As I walk by crystal streams that flow dotted white with cottony snow. Oh the heavenly peace that encompasses my soul this wintry night. As the snow glistens and sparkles under the soft glow of moonlight. I stand awestruck as I gaze upon snow covered emerald pine. Dusted in winters frosty touch so heavenly sublime. God placed a love of winters beauty within my lil' ol' country heart. Soft memories of this wonderland from my mind will never part.

Hi my Kentucky Rose. I have always loved this canvas, your words bring it alive as always. I can just walk into this glory and dream. I would bring you with me of course but you are there already so i don't have to. I love the gentle words that make my heart to sing. Your love of the snow does come through in this write Mary. This write makes me feel such peace. A soft, beautiful, excellent write. This has to be a seven and a fave. Love always....Mike. XXX

7 here too. : ) Mary, you have so much good stuff in this poem - it speaks to me! In 1972 my family moved from the city to the farm where my dad still is - a very good thing for my siblings and I. Ah, the winters - was not long before "the big one" came in 1978, a snowfall to remember. Always have loved the cold, tolerated it well - my wife shivers and I tell her to relax, to "become one with the cold." She then gives me the scorn I deserve. ; )
