(I have a love/hate relationship with winter...this is the love side!)

The gentle slopes sleep quietly
Beneath the quilt of white
Watched over by the peaceful pines
All through the frosty-night.

The sparkling powder 'neath the moon
A dazzling display
It fills my soul with rev'rent awe
Until the break of day.

The sacred silence can be heard
Resounding loudly in
The ears of all who listen close
A symphony therein.

And this sacred sanctuary
For all who care to see
It is but a bit of heaven
God's creativity.

I have the same love/hate relationship as you Denise. You described the likeable part very well! Wonderful imagery. I love when it first snows and that sparkle it sets off, just awesome!

Denise, your poem is very beautiful....I have often looked out the window at the reflecting ice diamonds and been awed by its silent beauty. You decribed it very well.

Thinking is just what a great many people think they are doing when they are merely rearranging their predjudices.

Denice,
Within the beauty lies the cold.
For this I think I'm much to old,
But you brought back memories.
A wonderful poem.
