Snow Song - Poem by Frederick Kesner

it's nice
just to hear
the wind,

the gently
even so

the flakes
of snow
into the drift
the door....

the sound
of snowflakes....
imagine we
very still
listening out
for its voice....

that corridor
where hearing
the gentle heaving
of breathing;
the wisps of breeze
through smooth hair -

a quietness
new sounds
songs rising
an awareness....
fresh, reviving.

[this is the place
where hearts speak,
our souls meet.]

__________________________________< br>I haven't been writing much of late. But here is a spontaneous write during a conversation with a friend as we spoke about the plus side of snow. It's kind of a collaborative work as our words and thoughts interspersed. Hope you enjoy the words.... thanks Joel
