The sun lit skies,
Glittering the season’s first snow,
Spreading over the trees,
Beyond the hills,
And by the prickly briers.
Sheets of white,
Draping the world,
With its ivory shroud,
And the shining graupels,
The soft grip of clouds.
Such is the nature’s caper,
Dancing in tandem,
As if set in some perfect harmony,
So hard to decipher.
And I sit by the windowsill,
Observing the quietude,
And though there is calmness,
Yet I hear nature’s sound,
Leaving me agape,
Dazzled and astound.

Snow sounds great right now! Great post!
Beautiful description of Mother Nature🙏🏻
‘Sheets of white draping the world’ such a wonderful description. I’ve personally never seen snow, but I don’t even know if I’d want to. As a Floridian, I think my bones would freeze upon arrival. 🤦🏽♀️😆
Very true! It’s beauty is unlike any other.
Divine beauty of mother nature!
Thanks a lot,Piyush
Haha you have not missed much. Snow is great for a day or two and then it is a hassle 😊🌸
Thanks so much, Piyush
Thanks a lot for reading
Haha, that’s comforting. My brother lives in Minnesota, he’s become a pro at shoveling snow, who would have thought?! A Florida man now shoveling snow. My sister-in-law says, at first, in the morning it’s a beautiful sheet of snow, by the end of the day, it’s mud! LOL I guess you can’t win them all after all. 🙂
Yeah. I am a sub person so cannot love snow more than a day 😊😊I tried learning skiing ⛷ but didn’t do well 😂
Oh no! Try again! 😊 Maybe sec
Maybe a second times the charm 😊
Thanks so much
I love the descriptions of the snowfall in this poem. Also, the end where you talk about your wonder and joy in this moment add to the beauty of the poem. -Jill
