It is snowing tonight!
How beautiful it is!
Everything is so lovely!
The first snow of the year!

I was all set for bed
when I decided
to put out the light and
to look out the window.

The fresh snow on the ground
and on the housetops
unspoiled by man or beast
appears so peaceful and serene

I see a pine tree
and the upper portion
of its branches and needles
are gently covered with snow.

I have seen that same tree
many times before
but never has it looked
as lovely as it looks tonight.

Thanks for your comments.

I am glad that you appreciate "Tranquillity". It was truly a beautiful scene - so peaceful and serene.
Peaceful poem.

Very beautiful Socrates. However (yes there's always a however with me) but the snow would be more beautiful if it stayed on the roof and the trees and out of the road, parking lots, sidewalks and driveways! laugh laugh I know. I'm a pessimist!
