This next poem, Winterworld, was inspired by a night scene I saw yesterday with snow falling in the darkness. Enjoy!
To theearth below.
Sometimeslit up by dim streetlights
But mostlyswallowed up by the blackness
The onlynoises are
A distantdog barking at the sky
The carsreplying as they roar through silent streets
Like piecesof the stars and the clouds
Or tinyworks of art
Ofsugarplums and soft blankets
Of fluffyclouds and gentle cushions
Of thepeaceful winterworld
The snowweaves a lullaby
That rocksthe city
