Decembers serenade .....verse

I stand mesmerized a moment and
watch as if just
now noticing the falling soft
white snow
and yet falling all day long with little accumulation
in lazy wet circles it drifts
softly to earth


This visual promise of snow
closes in on me
yet I love the smaller world away
well away from people and all their sounds
that lay hidden
softly muffled
no traffic
no children
no dogs barking
silence
white silence
and her

I often think of what it would be like
hermitically stuffed away in
the dark forest
looking out the same window
for all these hours
maybe a book half read at the table
soft music playing
or not
nothing but simple
white silence

But I have work to finish and
that never ends
so I will toil away with my tools
and these numbers
and my hands
yet in the back of my mind
the only thing moving
is the silent soft
whiteness from
some place
far above
