Snow White

I saw you,

One morning,

Blanketed in white-

A speckled canvas of virgin purity,

All color lost out

To a simpler shade of simplicity.

No more that magnificent mass

Of contrast and contradiction,

Just quiet and gentle

Unencumbered distinction.

Distant laughter

Sailed on a breeze

That swirled around trees-

Caught motionless in time,

With branches bare but for snow

Reaching down to Mother Earth-

So proud to be born from Her roots.

I saw you like this,

One ordinary morning,

Alone,

As tears formed icicles on my face,

While snowflakes fell from your skies

Hiding your valleys and hills

And I watched my feet disappear

‘Neath the snow white earth.

I saw you,

Like this,

That morning,

And that longed-for smile

Returned.

For All has it’s season

Which crawls to an end

But the most hopeful in heart

Can begin again.
