Falling slowly from the night sky,
a soft parachute of beauty
dances with the street light.

Swaying from right to left,
following the wind as it blows,
looking for a place to rest.

A soft brush silently covers the street.
The road sleeps under a white blanket tonight,
snowflakes greet every tree with a tickle.

The painting will never dry; ruined in the morning.
Mother Nature surrenders the street to mankind,
dismissing a masterpiece to the curb.

Staring out my window in the still of the night,
were my eyes the only two that saw?
A picture so perfect, so temporary.

  3. Very nice. As a former upstate New York resident, snow in December = beautiful. Snow in March = enough already. Snow in May = seriously?

    Really liked this, Paul. It’s different from your previous poems, but a good kind of different. Less wordplay, and rather a flow of lines that seem to sway, back and forth like snow. The ending was just absolutely lovely. Well done.

    THIS one is your best yet. You didn’t just create a picture with words, you created a mood with words. “The painting will never dry; ruined in the morning.” My favorite line. So true.
