Deep Winter

Deep winter creeps

Softly settling

Majestic and crisp, tenderly deafening

All grows still.

Quiet banks, quiet trees, quiet us

Deep winter sits

Freezing momentarily

Coolness breathes, a chilled reverie

Playing, recoiling

Stuck in an exhale of wondering.

Deep winter gleams

Slowly sifting

Pausing lovingly

Witness to her luster

Gazing at the magic song.

Deep winter freezes

Moving to warmth

Ignore crystals gleaming

Cascading splendor from roof edges

Retreat instead, caved in and covered.

Deep winter retreats

A picture outside windows

Surrounding mystic splendor

All is well. All is frozen. All is beautiful.
