Snow Blankets

Photographer unknown

Snow blankets the ground
and there are some who find solace
in the numbing cold, see the swan-feather snow
as comforter
the winter as time to sleep
buried beneath the pillow drifts
and dream
of spring.
What do their dreaming minds spin
on the wheel of their will,
what threads will we see
when the birds take wing? — Annette Marie Smith
