      A Reminder

      Poetry is happy today
      It woke with inspiration
      It's friend, the pen
      Could not keep up
      Afraid to lose itself
      It moved across the page
      Like the eye of a storm
      It could not even wait
      For its morning coffee
      To stimulate
      In haste and caution
      Of weeks passed
      I had forgotten
      The delicious sensation of life
      Today poetry gave voice
      To the white sky
      Where snowflakes
      Fell gracefully from the air
      And I thought my eyes
      Were so blessed
      To see the rolling hills
      Of the northern winter
      The twinkle from the trees
      In glistening sheen
      Forced me to blink
      Urging me to take notice
      Even the chill in the air
      Served me well
      Breathing in the splendid
      Miracle of life
      A fresh stillness offered peace
      The earth sat pretty, untouched
      Glowing with purity
      I drew in a deep feeling of joy
      Happy to trust the fallen gift
      I know only to well
      The radiance of snow-covered ground
      I have witnessed its presence many a day
      Yet I was consumed
      By the picturesque view
      As though I were seeing it for the first time
      These are moments saved for poetry
      A language that knows
      The true value of beauty
      I had forgotten
      The delicious sensation of life
      With a splendid reminder I see
      Poetry is happy today
