White waves of winter

White waves of winter

The White Waves of Winter

Snow sweeps in white waves

Builds the quiet deep

A flurry of winter’s best

Lays rest to the hurry fast

Demands a slow down


There’s a welcome in this rest

In the silence of white layers

folding in on the land in

this season’s call to quietude

When living pulls to the center


And the freeze whispers of green’s

Return in the quickening

Toward Spring’s shiver wakening

Not yet ready to melt the white away

For Winter’s hold is hard and slow
