First Snow

 

 

It covers the gray drab world

In a blanket of pure white

A blank tapestry unfurled

Bringing a hush to each night

 

Each crystalline, frosty flake

Falls like an answered prayer

Covering the sins we make

With each forgiving layer

 

Hidden from our ready view

The fear, scars and dirt below

Looking on a world anew

Life reflected in the show

 

Frozen love like angel’s tears

Floating down from sky above

The first fallen snow this year

Covers my world in love

  1. That is a beautiful picture your words painted! It felt warming even though you were talking about snow!

    I’ve been reading winter poems and this one is T H E most beautifully worded and exceptionally well written one.

    “Covering the sins we make
    With each forgiving layer”
    “Frozen love like angel’s tears
    Floating down from sky above
    The first fallen snow this year
    Covers my world in love”
    “Looking on a world anew
    Life reflected in the show”
    I absolutely loved it. The words you’ve choosen to weave this breathtakingly beautiful imagery is phenomenal.

    Snow as an angel’s frozen tears that covers our sins and reflects life? God, how did you come up with such a brilliant metaphor and word it so perfectly?

    I loveddd ittt!

      Thank you for your kind words, Megha! I appreciate your taking the time to comment and I am thrilled you enjoyed the poem! I don’t fully understand my own writing process well enough to say where the words come from. Sometimes they come easily, sometimes they are hard, and sometimes they don’t come at all. I was lucky that this came fairly easy and even luckier it connected with people like you! Thanks again! ❤❤❤
