Happy New Year, and Happy Poetry Friday. I am new to this community, as I have only contributed one time, and those were student poems. My One Little Word for 2017 is Rise, and in January I am rising to "Embrace Challenges." What better way to challenge myself than to share poetry once a week.
Mother Nature blessed us today with our first snow of the year. As my daughter and I pulled out of the driveway this morning, our inaugural tracks led the way down the deserted street. The snow glistened as the beams from our headlights lit our way. A beautiful, undisturbed sight that only a snowfall can provide.
I told my daughter, "Look at the diamonds." I only wish I had stopped for a picture.
under the cover of darkness
bequeaths a gift
of sparkling silence
