Seeing Through The Snow At Night Poem by Jette Blackstone

Seeing Through The Snow At Night

Rating: 4.7

Snow fell in a thicket of white,
melted in rivulets along the outside
of a bistro window, framing the image of ‘us.'
I glanced up into whiskey eyes
and lost perspective.

He grabbed my hand, whispered
love spun words I longed to taste.
His whispers made me shiver
as the snow spiraled higher and higher,
spun us into a single cloak.

A leg curled over mine.
‘I want you now' he whispered.
And I swallowed his eyes in one sip,
fell into a finely woven dream.

Hands wrapped over mine
and we held on until we could feel nothing
but the warm lip of our aspirations
melting along the fringes of darkness.

This poem was inspired by Fabrizio Frosini's poem, Nocturnal Snowing.In fact, it is a version of it.It was fun to let go to notions of pure light and the snow.

Snow is always such a romantic theme. I think because it comes at a time of hope and promise. Nicely written.

Thank you Susan. I was so taken by Frosini's poem I decided I need to create something dreamy and romantic...and pretty. Honestly, these Midwestern winters can be challenging...this poem just lightens everything...the poem is especially apropos in mid January through mid February. Anyways, thank you! :)
