The Winter’s Caper

Hey Fellow Bloggers

We are hit by another snow storm today. I grudgingly woke up and headed to the airport to catch my early morning flight. Got in my Uber ride questioning – why so many snow storms? But then I looked outside and I was awestruck by the beauty the nature presented to me. So I composed the below verse(on the plane 😊) Hope you like it and yeah the picture is from my drive today🌸😊

The air today was a tad different
gilded with thin layer of frosty gust,
the trees, the boulders,
and the far stretched meadows,
all shrouded in a blanket of feathery dust

I spread my eyes
agape and astounded
captivating the nature’s caper
wondering how the winter mischievously
showered a deluge of snowdrift
teaming up with the zephyr
in an absolute clandestine way

I stepped out in the cold
wearing my winter gears
and after a moment or two
my hesitation disappeared

For the breeze had a name
the cold had a smile
and when it gently brushed by face
it instilled some thoughts
for my soul to aspire and reclaim

      1. It’s beautiful when that happens!! I really like it whenever we see things in a different way, with a different perspective as if it was only a trick of light! I hope you have more of these type of moments 😊
