Snow Falling on Embers

Snow Falling on Embers

A Poem by A.J.


She was dancing, beneath the tree

As I shook the snow loose from its arms 

And it looked just like a scene from a crystal ball

Her tongue outstretched- her hair caught up in the breeze


I thought it strange, in a funny sort of way

With me up there, and an angel on the ground gazing up,

With eyes just for me, lit by fires burning deep internally,   

the world so far away from this place, where only we held sway


and I wondered, just how long this would be

how long did we have in this crystal ball

how long would her eyes melt the snows

just for me 

when the snows were all gone, the snows were all gone.
