Today my words don’t come out.
Today silence is all I am about.
My thoughts may scream or
sometimes even shout…
but just for Today that’s not what I am about.
Cold and chilled to the bone.
Icy stone reflections upon
a broken ridged frozen ground-
and when the snow comes softly-
when the snow comes softly
when the snow comes slowly
it never makes a sound.
Collecting itself into white velvet icy tapestry,
beneath its dusty fragile-ness that is a strength that lasts.
It tears us through months of Winter
and winds that howl
winds that blast.
But no more words do I have here-
there is nothing left to say
except tread lightly and admire the silence
of fallen snow
which stole my words Today.
