Refuge from a Snow Storm

Refuge from a Snow Storm

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Quiet snow falls on the winter of my heart

"




Your smile is like the prevailing wind... 

It draws me in like a 
bee to clover... 

I dream of you knocking on my door... 

when cold winds blow 
against my window pane... 

And in the morning light I see 

snowy footprints in the hall where 
you found refuge after all...

Beatiful words Pat. We all need shelter from the storm at some point in our lives, where warmth and comfort becomes more important than what we used to think was important, wealth. Perhaps you need to be welcomed out of a storm to see that though.
You put that into words so well.

I don't know why I didn't notice this (or your writing in general) before. Or did I? In any case, you write beautifully. I've peeked at your other poems. :)

What a beautifully moving poetic utterance, filled with warmth and longing. A snowstorm is coming here tomorrow, but I realize it can winter in the soul at anytime. Such peace flows through your words and these footprints found there.

Ah, may your precious heart always be found fluttering free...
Very nice! I liked it! Kind of reminds when in North Korea's freezing cold temperature, we would sleep on animal's fresh poop to keep warm in the cold nights and cuddle with the person next to you.

It's very original to compare the things you compare in this poem. It's all about not doing the predictable thing & that's what I love about your poem. It makes so much more sense than the typical comparisons. I love the way a touch of melancholy is wrapped up in a bright joyful scene . . . like some losses that linger in the background during every fun activity this time of year. Your message is a swirl of all the sensations as the holiday can often be hot & cold for most people (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

snow storms are great on Christmas cards and in fairy tales but not so good for the tired and weary, cold and hungry traveler, or those we love, especially our feathered friends, who need all the help they can get when the temperatures drop and their natural food supply is threatened.. what a captivating little poem and true...

Thank you Pat. I always enjoy your work.
I enjoyed the use of similes in this poem, for example comparing a smile of the subject of the poem to the wind. I most of all enjoyed the twist at the end of the poem where the dream is actually a reality. Well written, brief and to the point.

This is one of those beautiful poems that I wish I had written.
It feels like someone coming home after a storm that you feared might keep him/her away.
