One Deep Breath - Come to Your Senses


Snowflakes gather
like silent stars
resting lightly on my shoulder
~
We had our first dusting of snow today, just a few soft, wet flakes that rested lightly on your body, and then dissolved in an instant. They were only the harbinger of stronger, more determined flakes yet to come that will blanket the ground with a silent covering of starry white.

Gorgeous ode to the first snowfall - "the silent stars resting on my shoulder" is a beautiful image - and your poem and photo herald winter weather that I don't expect to see here until late December! Merci!

I love how the white snow blankets everything and the outside looks so clean and calm.
I can't wait for that first blanket.

Lovely and poignant haiku, and I loved the photo. It is raining here and turning to snow as it falls, but nothing is staying on the ground. I do wish a little of the snow was staying here today.

Beautiful haiku and photo. I'm spoiled to be away from snow, which I never liked, but you really accentuate the beauty of it.
