Winter Slumber


She closes her eyes to the falling snow
as daylight dims
in preparedness for night

the ghostly silence
of each singular flake
amasses to uniformity
upon one another
covering the sleeping earth
under a blanket of promise

like the dove
the crocus sleep
knowing their time
for flight will come

once again

So beautiful. It almost makes me wish I lived farther north where I could enjoy a winter like this, but only almost...
