A calm winters day
Winters stillness, no breeze in the air,
A clear sky, no clouds drifting up there.
The sun is shining over the land,
Shedding its light and touching my hand.
A fraction of warmth, only a kiss,
On this cold day, it’s easy to miss.
The trees stand still, filtering the light,
Through their branches, the sun is in sight.
Their shadows grow as sunset draws near,
What little warmth will soon disappear.
Winters stillness, the night claims the day,
In its calmness, a frost’s on its way.
