The Promise

Although most of the country has been experiencing
a plethora of winter weather, yesterday was the first
snow of the new year for the Plains.

I could not help but marvel at such beauty,
that brings with it... such peace.

This tranquility could erase the worries from even the
most furrowed brow.

However, the snow was not the only unexpected visitor.

"Breathless, I stand
a captive between
dream and reality
with such tender emotions
weaving themselves
like threads among
the moments and fantasies
of my mind.

Winter returns to blanket
the ground, with its reminder
that all is not lost...
all is not forgotten.

I promised you...
the stars,
the moon,
and a world of white."
