poem: New Snow

poem: New Snow

A Chapter by Marie Anzalone
"

something quick penned for a lonely friend this morning as I watched the new snow falling

"

for LH

 

I awoke this morning thinking of you

and wondered how you are today

in this new lonely year

I hear, and know, that things get monotonous

and even boring

in the sameness of the climate where it doesn't snow.

It does here.

today we have about three inches of new snow-

powder, actually-

perfect for sledding

and walking through the woods,

silent as a shroud attended by only

one's own thoughts and the chickadees.

and I wish you were here to see this

and go for a stroll with me

I'd make us some hot chocolate, double strength

with vanilla and peppermint

before we head out.

because the isolation in new snow is so beautiful

and not lonely at all

for the magic of its slumber reminds you

that underneath the desert of white

if you brush aside the dusting, and look deeper

you'll see next season's buds

simply waiting their turn for reawakening.

The snow just tells us we need to rest

a little ways before we begin again.

Such a peaceful, "restoring of the spirit" poem. It has so many subtle truths in it that aren't preached at us, but whispered underneath the words. Also loved the layout of the poem, which added to the easy flow of thoughts and images. It makes me wish I could take a stroll in the powdery snow, enjoy the beauty and the chickadees, then sit for a while for a visit including hot chocolate; double strength with vanilla and peppermint! It wasn't words on a page, but a 3-D experience in the mind. Thank you for sharing "New Snow".

it's such a companiable piece of work, probably spelled it all wrong. It just makes me want to wrap my arm in yours and walk along. That's a wonderful thing in a piece of writing.

What a wonderful way to show your support for a friend... I could say more but with this piece the only persons view that matters is that whom the words are for. I say bravo for opening your heart and warming another soul.

This piece has an innocence about it that makes the world new, yet brings home the cycle of the seasons. It has the power to evoke feelings of nostalgia, and send a message of hope even if one should find themselves in a desert of sorts this time of year. This has all the beauty of new fallen snow.
