Seraphim in Snow

Midnight, 21 December 2016

Neither starshine nor moonlight.
Instead, snow shine wraps me
in diamond dust at midnight’s hour.

Clouds cling to the earth, yet
a thousand celestial luminaria
light this solstice night. In the yard

a host of snow angels pressed
everywhere. No sounds, no footfalls.
No crinkle of crenelated wings.

    I love this, Bonnie, a streetlight or yard light isn’t necessary with all the sparkling whiteness. Faye

    Captured the feeling, beautifully. Thank you, Bonnie
