carefully everywhere descending (apologies to ee)

Perhaps somewhere snow
arranges itself carefully
and everywhere descending,
but here it is less pointillist
and more whitewashing
with a wide brush,
painting over everything
an annihilating sameness.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Wow, that final line’s a killer, Susan 🙂

    painting over everything
    an annihilating sameness…. ha…i like that… carves out the contours of things as well.. i find snow highly fascinating…was snowing last night over here..

  3. beautiful….I see white! I imagine that

    the same blanketing to fine sameness,
    a fine ridged and ribbed cover of sameness
    creating a dazzling but confusing sameness
    could be said of the “cumming” of brown
    soft sand sprinkled by sandy lover
    over the warm body of the willing
    but widening Sahara on its march
    to see the sea

    If we had gotten significant snow this year, it would look just as you described here. 🙂

    It sounds to me like you’ve had enough of the white stuff for sure.

    I look outside and I see your words Susan. Wonderfully done(on all levels)

  8. nelle says:

    I’m snowed out… but the drifts were cool.

    I like the way the snow paints..

  10. Nothing carefully about that, eh? By the way, in my reader I saw a poetry cloud around here somewhere, but it seems to have lifted. 😉 Is that were the blizzard came from? 🙂

    • David, I did a poetry cloud, but could not make it big enough to share. I am graphically-challenged 😉

      • Aw, no worries. You can use the embedding code if you like, but you’re right, it does make it small. But when people click on it the larger version shows up. The other possibility is to bring it up on your screen and use the print screen button, then paste it into something like Paint, Photo Filter or Paint Shop, save it as a jpeg and then upload it. I know, it’s always frustrating to me to play with that stuff when I don’t know my way around.
