My Winter’s Friend

My Winter’s Friend

Like white clouds viewed from above
stretching as far as the eye can see
puffy balls of cotton inviting
a playground for our imaginations
bringing back memories of our childhood dreams.

Older now… we still see
images of things pleasing
bringing smiles as we stare
finding refuge from the days toils.

A wintry landscape shows… revealing
white blankets… soft pillows
enhancing all it surrounds
a playground for our imaginations
memories and desires given new life.

A welcome mat,  inviting all
so many ways to immerse one’s self
in the opportunities it offers.
The feel of its sting as it caresses us
a reprieve from the summer heat…
my winter friend… snow.

  1. What a great comparison to draw between the snow and the clouds. I also loved the way you describe it’s “sting” as “caressing,” great choice of words.

    Thanks for linking up with The Lightning and the Lightning Bug!

  2. You bring such warmth and softness to what is usually thought of as cold and harsh. What lovely images, brings smiles to the face and warmth to the heart. Thank you.
