Snowfall



silent
snowflakes falling,
a diamond comforter
covering a slumbering woods
with white

the moon
shivers behind the clouds watching
flurries dance with the wind
in a crystal
ballet

Oh, beautiful! Love the "diamond comforter", the "crystal ballet". Not looking forward to winter but you make it almost palatable. :)

"The moon shivers..." Sucha vivid line. I can see it--have seen it!
Very nice write, Susie!
