Snapthought: Frozen

ice

we crunch on through a world
encased in glass
crackling footsteps feel the fragility
while whispers fall soft
as snow on numb ears
watch as glittering thoughts collect
pile up and drift
with the best intentions
they weigh us down
as we stand frozen
and wait for the melt
to begin

snow magicsnow walk

  1. A perfect poem for a January. I do indeed feel weighted down in January and February. Makes me a bit sluggish. And while March is no picnic, we at least know spring is near. Great stuff. 🙂

  2. Sheila, you write with such a clear beauty. There are so many facets to your words. Personally, I’m looking forward to the melt

    • That’s funny because I’m sure the frozen people around here would love a few moments in the tropics! Thanks for visiting and wandering through the snow with me.

    • Thank you! The snow is really nice to look at, especially from a window (and while sitting by the fire with a good book). I hope you’re enjoying your snow out there.

  3. I can feel the cold through all of your words — nicely done. We had a couple of really warm days last week (50s) and a lot of the snow melted. But, alas, it’s snowing again today. I’m such a wimp, but I must say that I’m ready for spring. 🙂

    • Thanks Kate! It was pretty cold and icy out there. I love watching the snow fall, just not always the freezing weather that comes along with it. Just a few more months and hopefully it’ll be spring. 🙂

  4. Lovely. Fancy doing a collaboration – I provide a picture and you put words, or if you like you can try sending me a picture too. See my collaborations page. No problem if you’d prefer not too. MM 🍀

    • Thanks so much! That sounds like a lot of fun. I’ll send you my email if you’d like to send a picture any time. I love what I’ve seen of your photography so far.
