The snow fell silently outside

Updated on November 9, 2011


We sat together as a family, broken.

We wore black, but the snow was so very white.

We cried and stared at each other in disbelief.

The snow fell silently outside


Our feet crunched, breaking the white landscape

and disappearing into its icy blanket.

How softly those flakes fell through the night.

Building their white masterpiece.


Their tiny shapes melted on warm cheeks

of little ones playing, building snowmen.

The icy cold enveloped our pain and made it clear.

The snow fell silently outside

      Snow also reminds us that life itself is transient. Nice one :)

      Thank you Trish. There is something so evocative about snow. I always get so excited when it comes. I don't know who's the bigger kid, me or my children!

      I love the snow, too.

      Of course, I worry about the dangers ~ for the elderly and on the roads, etc ~ but I still enjoy walking in it, and taking lots of photographs.

      There is something really very special about fresh white snow. :)
