White Out

White Out

The snow kisses the ground
And lingers awhile
Its down-like blanket
shrouding the forest
fooling us
with a wicked smile
 
Tree branches encased
with crystal ice
Preservation limited
until Spring
when the sun returns
to this part of paradise
 
Lonely footprints
in the virgin snow
marking the journey
of someone’s adventure
across the field
now fallow 
 
No tire tracks to be seen
and no soul in sight
Not even a snowman
gracing a garden
or a cardinal against
the backdrop of white

    Really true picture of a chilling 🥶 winter.

    You have really captured that feel of a fresh snowfall – the beauty and the loneliness.

      Thanks V.J. Yes, it is so beautiful to look at, but you are completely alone. Sometimes that’s a good thing I suppose but I’m sure it can be depressing over a long period of time 😔

        I think the loneliness was my projection. Winter weather usually keeps me home bound (unless my gracious husband drives me south.)

        Maybe he will! You’ll both need a break sometime soon 😎 Here’s hoping for you.
