She warns you quite well.
Can’t you see?
Can’t you tell?
With a message so clear:
Ease your mind now, please dear.
Your busied life — she protests:
You must slow down and get your rest.
Do not refuse, you have no choice.
She gives you snow – the soundless voice.
White noise which
Brings you peace.
An eerie break,
A welcomed release.
A rather frigid, biting breeze.
Oh what a wonderful reprieve!
Your life condemned by extraneous deed,
Abruptly halted by Her it seems.
We are powerless, indeed.
Embrace the stillness, now seen.
Kisses from eggshell skies
Fall down upon your eyes.
With each flake that hits your nose,
Make haste in your repose.
A peaceful warrior’s pause on life,
You must follow her lead sans strife.
It is now you feel the calm
Of Mother Nature’s winter song.
So while you whine as inches grow,
I give thanks for timely snow.
Special thanks to a beautiful friend who reminds me (daily) to embrace the peace, feel the calm, and remain present in this life
