Peaceful Snow

Peaceful Snow

A Poem by Poetic Beauty
"

Not my favorite time of year

"
Heavy gray clouds loom over the earth
Releasing fluttering specks of white
Sparkling like glitter before my sight

The ground soon blanketed with new snow
Painting a picture with a somber tone
Making life seem chilly and alone

Sad quietness fills the fridged air
Desolate darkness encloses the street
The silence of nature's death is complete

World of vivid colors faded away
Giving birth to a season of gray, white and brown
Encompassing the little quiet town

No passing of cars on the snowy road
A stillness surrounds the dreary night
But a peaceful calm creates delight.

Excellently put. I'm actually a big fan of winter. It's my favorite season. Then again, I prefer the loneliness this poem so elegantly reflects over the obnoxious sociality of summer et al. But I love it; the tone, the imagery, the rhyme scheme, everything. Very well done, and seasonally appropriate.

I love the snow and see it's beauty but it has brought a great depression and loneliness also - poignant write.

This is a good stanza:

Sad quietness fills the fridged air
Desolate darkness encloses the street
The silence of nature's death is complete

A solid poem that focuses on the beauty in the death of the landscape.

Now you know me, I don't normally give ratings but I had to nudge it closer to 95

I understand that it is not your"favorite time of year"..it is not, for many people.
But it is time for me and things to relax, in the natural cycle of work and rest.

"Making life seem chilly and alone"
The snow covered ground reminds me of a blanket, that tucks in seeds, weeds and flowers..it seems to be pulled over the root of trees, to keep their feet warm.

"The silence of nature's death is complete"
It is not a death silence, it is a resting silence
"Be still, it is the master of unrest"..(Tao-verse )

"But a peaceful calm creates delight."

Ah, see you have struck the bell that peals the goodness found in strife......:-)

Iam glad you wrote this poem, I am happy that I read it.
