Snow Globe

Sun, 04/10/2016 - 18:22 -- jwesly

A swift, steady, determined shake

Sleeping village from slumber wakes

The lonely streets caressed by flakes

The town turns over, but snoozes on

Children dozing under warm covers

While elders watch the fire die

Talking about winters long gone

Warmed by flames and memories

As they watch the children lie

Dreaming of frozen paradise

Perfection coated with sheets of ice

Till it's shattered by laughing, playing, dancing in the wetness

Till I give the globe another shake
And remember once more

This poem is about: 
Me
My country
Our world
