My latest Poem: Falls the Snow

Posted: November 21, 2009 in Poetry, Writing

Falls The Snow

Snow flakes,
Fluttering,
Through the sky.

Simply,
Singular,
In their complexity.

Forming,
Thick,
Carpets of cold.

Through the blustery winds,
Darkness now descends.

Headlamp carves the frenzied flurries.
Footsteps filled to the size of bread crumbs.
Familiar forests take on anonymity.

Evergreens embraced,
By feet of frosted fancy.

There is a rustle in the snow,
And a warning growl so low.

Sent by Jadis, Comes Feneric,
Stalking through the drift.

Child of Adam awaken.
This voyage that you’ve taken.
Is all imagination.

Falls the snow.
