I wonder if snow is quiet
like cat paws on roof peaks.
I have never listened to snow.
I imagine that in the silence
of night the artist paints
the grass white
and dresses all the trees
like brides.
The morning paper,
an intruder slithering a defying
line across the yard
would rest just out of reach.

You would wear your robe and barefoot
gallantly numb your toes
to place the paper on the bed
then find the warm place still.

I listen to the rain tonight
like a good back rub to my dreams.
I wake and sleep to its peaceful cadence.
I like the sound of rain.
Still, someday Id love to wake and find, that quiet like cat paws on roof peaks,
it snowed.

Liked this much.Snow is quiet,soft and gentle.It's great to sit and watch the snow fall.Then the hell of shoveling begins!

This is so pleasant to read, Martie. It flows soft and gently off the screen and into the reader's eye much like the snowfall you describe. Very nicely done.

Denise and Watcher, thanks for telling me about snow and for your comments. I think I'll stick with rain for now, and Balladeer, your comments are always appreciated, thanks.
