"It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things." - Leonardo Da Vinci


Against the darkness of night, the small white flowers float down delicately,

swirling in the wind before falling down.

One by one, they settle in the corners of my window

as I gaze out at a white world.

A soft and cold world that calls out to me,

but my touch would only taint such perfection.

The smooth lining of the whiteness cover the world in a soft blanket

and invites the living to play.

But such beauty cannot exist for long, 

for the sun is sure to rise soon,

and with it, the innocence of children and their older accomplices as they change this world.

For good or for bad? They are intertwined, as they always are.

But for now, this white world is mine and mine alone as I gaze at the sincerinity of its beauty.


The author's comments:

This poem was inspired as I looked out my window at the snow sprinkled on the houses and lawns in my neighhood. It was such a pretty scene that reminded me of nonstalgic feelings in the past, and so I have written them down.
