Poem: Silence of Winter

I walk in the silence of woods
That only snow can bring
When all creatures are slumbering
Warm in their homes
And those who are pad lightly
Their sounds not trespassing
On the ears of a lonely wander
Who has strayed far from warmth
To commune in solidarity
With the cold season
Where everything seems clearer
Feelings more acute
Spirit more vibrant
When the weather can be felt
Like a cold cloak penetrating
Into the deepest parts of the soul
Bringing clarity as nothing else can
