Nestled In the Valley

Nestled in the valley

hugged by strong arms sprinkled

with snow, guarded by

the softly swaying trees

we breathe in the safety of peace.

    Thank You! Yes, the warm air of Florida is the best place for you. The snowy cold hunches up those muscles…well, maybe just my snow, crabby frowny muscles. 😉
    Love to you Nancy! Have a great day my friend. 💕💕💕

    Lovely way to turn a frown upside down during snowy days. I am happy I live in Florida. 😎 My body cannot tolerate the cold anymore but I love snow and the way you described it. Snowy hugs, Alexis. ❤

    Yea. Wierd, huh?

    When I see snow, I think: “clean”, “peaceful”, “magical”.

    I remember all the good times I had with friends sledding in Valley Forge park and all the memories of taking my son to that same place so many years later. In fact he made me promise to take him again this year at the next decent snowfall!

    Thanks Alexis, and be well,

    Thank You! I didn’t realize snow symbolized death. It’s pretty when it first falls and its pristine and bright. Have a good Sunday! Alexis

    Untangled, greatly enjoyed your poem.

    Snow is often assumed to symbolize death (Robert Frost “Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening,” but I’ve always enjoyed the snow for the peaceful stillness and silence it brings. I always find snow very centering, even rejuvenating. And on a moonlit night, a good coating of snow sparkles and shines as if the ground were covered with an endless blanket of diamonds or stars.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    I think drink in the peace and being in a state of peace. ahhhh, both sound blissful! 🙂

    Nicely done. In the last line are you breathing in a “state of” peace; or drinking in the peace? I do like the calm of your writing here.

    Love the poem, snow works well as an idea, the reality is more shiversome.

    This morning as I shoveled my driveway, I was in a mood…so I thought I would try to turn my frown upside down. 🙂
