FINDING QUIET LEISURE ON A WINTER DAY ...


I LOVE A MORNING LIKE THIS,
WHEN BIG SNOW FLAKES FLOAT SLOWLY DOWN
AMID TALL TREES AROUND MY HOUSE,
AS IF THEY HAVE ALL DAY TO  MAKE THEIR WAY 
FROM CLOUD TO GROUND.

AND WHEN THEY LAND, THEY ARE FOLLOWED BY 
ANOTHER SLOWLY FLOATING SNOWFLAKE ARMY
AS IF THERE IS NO END.

THIS IS PEACE AND RELAXATION WHILE IT LASTS.
FEW PEOPLE TAKE THE TIME TO NOTICE.

I WONDER HOW THE SNOWFLAKES FEEL ABOUT THAT.

WAKING UP AT DAYBREAK TO SNOWFLAKES SIFTING THROUGH  THE TREES OUTSIDE MY BEDROOM WINDOW
