Softly Falling
I look out the window and watch the soft snow fall slowly downward
till it softly comes to rest on the ground below.
So still and peaceful the cold air seems.
No sound, no breeze, nothing but snow coming down upon the ground.
It falls and covers the earth little by little,
stacking up on the tree limbs and covers everything in sight.
Slowly, oh so slowly the land is taken over by the soft white flakes.
The once hurried streets and rushed lives
come to a stop and life seems to be absent.
The sound of a train whistle
can be heard through miles and miles of mountains.
The peaceful day, nothing to worry about excpet the thoughts in your head.
Your thoughts soon come to be as the snow----
soft, simple, then slowly melted away and forgotten.

 "Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it."
Henry David Thoreau

Don't look... you might see.
Don't listen... you might hear.
Don't think... you might learn.
Don't walk... you might stumble.
Don't run... you might fall.
Don't make a decision... you might be wrong.
Don't might die.

This is beautiful, Hoppy! I can't understand why no one has yet replied. I love the way you make every word mean so much....I could just see the winter wonderland you described, and the way you compare the thoughts in your head to snow...I like that, think it's very clever. Great jobe here!! I hope people reply to it sometime!!

Love and hugs,
