Nebraska: A Wintry Day For Play

*

The Plains lie still in the wintertime,

gathering drifts of a chance design.

The north wind shapes the curvaceous lines

that flatter the figures of the pines.

*

Whilst Beethoven played in the background,

snowflakes chaotically fluttered around;

scattering about to the glorious sounds,

as whirlwinds of violins touched and rebound.

*

Looking like gnats made of ice and snow,

landing with ease as the music slows,

then rising again with their hearts aglow

on turbulent gusts the trumpets blow!

*

Spinning around like a twister there,

charming their mates with crystal ware.

Sparkling now, they flit through the air,

awake,  aloft, attuned and aware.

*

Oh, that we might be like snowflakes – each one rare,

light be thy burden, no weight to bear.

Dancing and twirling on through the air,

true lovers in flight without a care!

  1. They say, when do snow in Nebraska
    ’tis a few days adrift from UK.
    and I must say ‘thas turned a lot colder
    since Beethoven had his say
    So I wait for his snowflake flutter
    to brew up a twister above
    in which each soul will have utter
    then melt in the arms of Love

  2. 🙂
    Set in motion by Uncle Tree and in honour of the snowman!

    Hadn’t a clue where it was going til we got there!

    Quite enjoyed the subtle weave 😉

  3. Beautiful! I admire the prayer at the end for each one of us to be unique….it’s what mankind was made to be, but it is so easy for us to forget…this is a great reminder.

  4. Dearest Caroline,

    Thy thoughts are divine
    The thought that ye are mine
    sets ablaze my sweet sunshine
    and I melt as quickly as I am formed
    from the clay and the snow thou hast warmed

    I so love you! ❤ Thank you, honey chile! Huggerz, UT
