Bibbeck

Snowy Day

Snow is a thick white blanket

Upon which the world....

sleeps

Cold, colourless stuff that

falls

in

flakes

Soft and sleepy snow

Sometimes falls fast...

sometimes slow

It falls in sheets

Like a curtain being drawn

It drifts across the sky

Blocking out the light

It falls so quietly

Flakes floating in the night

Brightening up the sky

With a great white light

Falling

Falling

Freezing droplets of ice

Crisp snowballs, frosty snowmen

Oh, isn't snow nice!

    Love this frosty work in the grip of Summer! Gives me something to look forward to. I enjoyed your playfulness with "floating" and "droplets".

    • Bibbeck

      Thanks Heather T. It would be nice to have a real proper snowy day this Winter. Our Summer hasn't been that good so far though, more like Autumn, so Winter doesn't seem too far away.

      Bibbeck, I used to live in Montreal. Love to look at snow, but believe me, Hawaii is better!
      Love your poem though!

        Much as having good weather is great for getting out to do things, I like the seasonal changes. I may have visited Montreal many years ago - I went skiing at Mont Tremblant; although my first time, it was the BEST! Thanks for your appreciative comment.

          Growing up in Switzerland I skied the alps, so the first time I went to Mont Tremblant it seemed like just a little hill! :-) But it was still better than not skiing at all!

          Brrrrr is right. But, it is hot and humid here so this is a refreshing read.

            WBL, glad to give you a bit of refreshment in your 'muggy' day.

            Good write but as far as I am concerned snow is best seen in pictures.

            • Bibbeck

              GF it does look glorious in pictures, in its perfect state of rest and fluffiness. It's nice out in it if you're wrapped up warm too. Much more comfortable though in written words. ;-)

                Thx for your appreciation, Grange. I bet you got plenty recently in the 'Beast'.
