The snow fell down- like feathers, flew, and clung to everything that grew. Each branch and twig was fluffed with white- highlighted 'neath the moon's soft light. Serene this vision, I saw through. The snow fell down- like feathers, flew. A white-lace haze of snowflakes made an opaque patterned window shade. And through that shade, I saw a deer beneath the glow of moon so clear. The snow fell down- like feathers, flew- but falling faster blocked my view. Now I, behind my window, warm and safe from this cold winter storm, prayed hard the deer find comfort too. The snow fell down- like feathers, flew.

I don't often comment on a poem that's in a contest before it's been judged, but I had to when you first posted this one. It's wonderful and congratulations, Sandra.

wow, such gorgeous pictures you put with it, Sandra!! I do not like snow but I really like how you did that theme!! Lovely how you inserted the deer into the scene too. Great meter, rhyme, punctuation, etc. ALL those things add up for me. I wish all those entering would get that! Congrats.
