Prediction

Snow falls
soft, silent, virgin flakes
which cover the scene
with winter’s first new
blankets of wonder.

I wander paths that
haven’t been seen for
some time
and, you appear

Come close enough
to reach in through the
hollow of bones which ache
and touch the depth of
my spirit as it tries
to stay upon its
sacred road
leaving misery behind.

A world apart

All of life flounders
in the shallow of each day
but safe inside the hearts
of those who love
we breathe in
…exhaling clarity.

The snow dances her
sensual ballet for me
(a captive audience)
as chests rise and fall
all inside of destiny’s
seamless prediction.

  1. Sad and sorrowful but so true about life. We have the memories and can bathe in them but then it is time to move forward. Your last line says it all “all inside of destiny’s seamless prediction” Beautiful!

  2. I love the magic of your imagery! The last stanza stands out most to me. I can see myself under a street light watching the snowflakes descend and twirl towards earth, my own private ballet. I ran home and wrote a poem about it 😀 It was about winter’s ballet~

    Beautiful!

  3. Just lovely. What a peaceful scene you paint with your words. I love thinking about the snow dancing a sensual ballet.

  4. Oh this snow just has to go. I’d rather not be in the know and just enjoy your flow. But having to drive in the junk, gets me in a funk..haha
