It is a COOL thought that our whole country was blanketed with snow at Christmas.
A wonderful place to escape the busyness of life is to go for a walk in our neighbourhood forest park. AHH, the silence!
In deafening silence
complex, crystalline snowflakes
free fall and tumble effortlessly
to the Earth's floor,
laying a pristine carpet
as they gracefully collide
conforming to the contour of the land.
Beneath the soles of fleece-lined boots
the silence is shattered with
groans and squeaks of distress
as stellar dendrite arms are crushed
stamped with the image of heavy treads.
