one enchanted evening…


Enchanted,  I followed the snowfall
into the park
and slid down the hill,
silent in the night


the quiet fell
soft as snow
and my heart knelt down
in wonder


and thumped hard with joy
as the sky opened wide,
belted out a mysterious  hush
and wrapped me in the sound

this mercy falling down
gathering the me up
into swirling awe
and nudging me
more alive
in the living.


So grateful for this peaches and cream snow
and tickled you can wallow in it with me!

“Nothing’s more fun
than being carried away.”
