Poetry and Musings


White powdery substance

It feels like

A soft sensation

What a delight



I used to play

In the snow

Why don’t I anymore?

I don’t know


Growing older

A blessing and curse

I yearn for more

But as a child

I was never spiritually poor



Never take it for granted

Like the snow

It will be here one day

But gone the next

  2. Absolutely true words, Carly and the snow is so beautiful one can easily lie there all covered like a white blanket. Great poem.
