Into A Stormy Window - Poem by william luo

The light taping of the snow above
She awakes to a blurry vision
A soft smile to the binding warmth
And looks out to the frosty adhesion.

Through the raging silent winds
Each breath the white world bloom
Slowly the snow will settle
And start again to the audience of the moon.

Appear in a distance a shroud of cold
Stepping into a windy clearing
The shredding ice bashing about
Small life struggles in its bearing.

Strangled by the grip of moisture
The frail stem strive to hold on
As leaves and petals in fear they flutter
Rolling gusts diminishes its mourn.

And then the earth fell, twisting and turning
A moment gone, a darkened face
The feeling of calmness and security
No longer moving but moving with haste

The white lily linger at the window sill
Dripping leaves tears of gratitude it weeps
Both hearts beating, she sighs
Snuggled in covers back into sleep.

    As I said on the poetry writing forum, this is a good atmospheric poem. Check title though. All The Best. Paul. (Report) Reply
