February snowfall

I decided to write this poem this morning.  At about seven o’clock I thought I saw a beautiful white feather floating around in the breeze. It didn’t look like it was going to land and, whilst watching it, I realised it must be a snowflake.  It didn’t seem that there were going to be anymore. I was fortunate enough to just be pottering, drinking my beloved morning cup of tea so was able to take the time to observe and see how that one single snowflake was joined gracefully by others.  It was really beautiful to watch.

February Snowfall

One tranquil innocent flake

Drifts on the gentle breeze

Almost feather-like, floating

Searching for its landing pad.

One, two, three, then more

Fleetingly join the flurry

Swirling, twirling, dancing in the air

Hovering and wavering with trepidation.

Beautiful lace-like snowflakes

unique and individual

exclusive and serene

float amidst the cool wintery air.

Exquisite as graceful ballerinas

pirouetting in Swan Lake

Perfect, pure, angelic

A beautiful sight to behold.

Slowly gaining momentum

Yet still so peaceful and calm

Like petals falling from a rose

Or butterflies fluttering on the wind.

Gracefully settling down on the ground

Like a dusting of icing sugar

A gentle blanket caressing the earth

Enveloping everything in its sight.

Hi, thanks for reading. I'm Fiona, I live in Surrey, England. I started my blog in January 2018. I like trying to be healthy and trying to make our home and garden look pretty. I love cats, dogs, cooking, flowers, light pink and light blue and pretty things. In my head I can run marathons but realistically I can only run a tap. I like to be happy - who doesn’t?! I like nice people and try to make the most out of life and be positive as much as I can 😊

  1. I loved this description that you wrote: “I was fortunate enough to just be pottering, drinking my beloved morning cup of tea so was able to take the time to observe and see how that one single snowflake was joined gracefully by others.” I can tell by these words that you are able to really be present and enjoy the blessing of each moment that comes. Just reading things makes me want to have a cup of tea while watching snowflakes fall as well. I feel more peaceful just imagining it–thank you.
