Quiet moments

I gaze upon the snow-covered landscape.

Glistening in silvery white in the moon’s waxing glow.

Stillness abounds as I peer through the window.

My warm breath lingers on the panes.

A nighthawk squawks; in the distance a dogs

bark pierces the night resound “gruff!” “gruff!”

the headlights from a passing motorist break the spell.

The gazing has stopped.
