A Winter Message

By : Mark R Slaughter

A flake of snow in flurry thro’ the air
Had landed as a kiss upon my cheek:
A secret message, just for me to share;

Frost and Snow No 1


To take to heart but never dare to speak
About or presuppose to other eyes
Your open feelings – distant though they are.
And so, upon my own surprise:
A flake of snow returned from me afar.

Frost and Snow No 2

  3. beautiful – I love the sparse yet textural richness of the images- and the poem has has real depth but a light touch at first reading – very much like those first flakes that can pleasantly take us by surprise… Thanks!

  5. Once again I love that top image! I love how the frosty branch on the rock looks like a hieroglyph.
