a snowy day
My day began in darkness. I padded out to the kitchen to put the water on for coffee, noticing the blanket of stillness tucked all around the morning. As I waited for the water to boil, I let my skin drink in the moonlight that was eagerly gushing through the windows and let my mind rest in the stillness.
Stillness continued to follow me throughout the day. One perfect, icy blossom was delivered in small, gloved hands whilst I sipped my coffee. My heart was caressed with peace brought on silvers of light that danced with dappled shadows from the brightness outside.
Pink cheeks to kiss were nestled in blond locks and little fingers needed warming.
The quiet beauty of the day finally beckoned me outside. My ladybug boots carry me through the cold stillness outside first to the mailbox with a small hand nestled in mine and later down the hill on a sled while my heart soared with pure joy.
Tears of joy and deep recognition came through the stillness of the airwaves while I talked to E on the phone and we reveled in the depth of our friendship and love for one another.
Love came with with the light reflected off the pale face of sister moon and continued to flow through the fibers of my being. Love lingered in the dark swirl of my coffee and swelled up in the clarity that comes with an untroubled heart.
The white, crystalline carpet still glistens outside my window and Love stays with me now as darkness gets tucked under my chin in the stillness of the night.
