Reflections on a Snowy Day


The gray sky grows heavy,
laden clouds and
menacing shadows.
The storm--
almost peaceful--
deceives,
greeting all with an
icy kiss.
Snow falls silently,
covering the ground with a
chilly blanket of white.
The wind is still,
the air,
hushed.
Winter approaches softly,
Her bare arms
reaching
in an empty embrace.
