Snow Covered Meadow

Snow covered meadow,


Invisible animals

The only signs of life.

How peaceful is winter’s blanket

From behind frosted window pane.

Harshness tempered by modernity

Heat, Wisp of steam

Floral scent of herbal tea filling the air.

Thankful to be witnessing

Beauty and cruelty,

From the comfort of home.

    • Actually no, I am originally from New Jersey and still have family back there so I decided to write about that given the storm they were having. Here in Arizona, it actually is pretty nice, 45-50 degrees in the morning and upper 60’s to low 70’s in the afternoon, who am I to complain. 🙂

      • Wow, that’s terrible, I hope that you made it back home unscathed. I’ve been out of the snow for almost 15 years, except for 2 weeks ago when I went to Flagstaff and got stuck on the I-17 during a snow storm. It was only a few inches, but there was ice underneath that was left over from the storm before. My 2 hour trip turned into 3 1/2 hours, but certainly nothing like a 3 day delay. I love snow, but it certainly wreaks havoc on travel.

    • The east coast of the U.S. got the most snow and I’m certain that the homeless suffered terribly. This is where I am originally from the New York, New Jersey area. Thank you so much for your comment Gilly, I share your concerns.
