    It's before noon, and the blizzard
    has begun, tiny snowflakes falling
    like ice crystals upon cold faces
    yet inside, I hear a voice calling
    softly, whispering my name
    in front of the fireplace of your soul
    relaxing on a woolen blanket
    almost forgetting about the whole
    world outside of us, the ground
    now carpeted in granules of white.
    Folks gingerly stepping through piles
    of snow, while our line of sight
    is transfixed on smiles and reciprocal
    blushing glances, embers in our eyes
    are dancing. Savoring picnic basket treats and
    sipping wine, we fall deeper into Cupid's guise.
    Bitter winds, crystal flakes scatter,
    fingertips tingle, as teeth begin to chatter
    shovels dig for hidden trails, snow balls hurled
    amid children's laughter, the blizzard doesn't matter
    as two get lost in a mellow, lingering kiss, I
    turn over, and he sighs, as our bodies spoon,
    spent, we reminisce over the bliss just shared
    as our winter wonderland now rests under the moon.

    Gotta make that lemonade out of lemons, ya know sis? Your compliment humbles me, being the talented writer that you are. Btw, when will we be graced by your pen again?

    What a great winter wonderland drop.

    Baby it's cold outside. That spooning idea sounds great. Let the others dig out of the snow, while I venture the treasures below. While they have fingers tingling, teeth chattering and glistening eyes. I will am here with you by my side. Lets continue this until after Feb 14th.. :hearts2: he he ..Oh this is heaven!

    Yes, Hodee, this scenerio is such a great alternative to braving the blistering winds, snow blindness, and the aching back from shoveling. Your kind response is very much appreciated brotha poet, thank you.
    Thank you for peeking into the calmer side of the storm Khasm.
