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!

Great Uncle Tree
Beautiful words with beautiful music
Great way to start a weekend
🙂 Thank you, Susie! 🙂
I am touched. Nebraska. My roots, my life…my love. ~j~
I’m glad you liked it, Cheryl Ann.
It’s the least I could do for my home away from home.
Well, I left out Lincoln, but hey! There it is! 🙂
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
😉 SWEET! 🙂
Awe! Ed, that was really nice!
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 😉
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.
🙂 Thank you, Susanna! I’m glad you caught my drift. 😉
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
Awww ❤ Thank you, luv! 🙂 Hugzz
