Listening Dec31 by melodylowes Soft and still, the silent snow Speaks in icy syllables – Rosy cheeks and tingling toes, Hibernating miracles, Children carving angel’s wings, Jingling sleigh-bells, frozen breath; Holidays and lights on strings, Life in temporary death.

I wish you a happy new year! 🙂
Grazie, Antonio! I wish you a wonderful year filled with good things!
Wonderful poem, you know how to tingle my imagination with your vivid descriptions! Happy New Year my friend!
Thanks so much, Sandra! Happy New Year to you, too!
Lovely poem and Happy New Year to you Melody. 🙂
And to you too, Dominic! 🙂
Lots of good stuff here–I love “icy syllables” and “hibernating miracles”. Wishing you a very Blessed New Year full of His Presence–love, sis Caddo
The very best kind of year, for sure! Right back at ya, babe!
That was worth reading just to discover icy syllables!
😉 Some forms of communication are more effective than others?
Another beauty for us to take in, Melody! Thank you and God bless you and yours this new year!
Aw, thanks so much, Debbie. Praying that the year to come will add to your storehouse of wisdom and character!
This one takes my breath away with icy wonder….beauty.
Thanks Marcy! Praying your new year is filled with hugs and miracles, wisdom and awe, love and laughter, growth and blessings!
My cheeks are definitely rosy…LOL
Of course they are! 😉 Wishing you a healthy and wise year to come! Hugs back!!
Happy New Year, Melody! We’ve got fresh snow here, today as well. I’m sitting with a good book, enjoying the candles I lit. Blessings to you!
What a wonderful way to usher in a new year, Pam! I am itching sandfly bites – I’m covered with them!! Ugh! But a week in Jamaica was just what the doctor ordered. We had a wonderful time reconnecting with family in a gorgeous setting, being completely spoiled for a blissful week. Looking forward to a new year of adventure and growing – hope yours is a blessed and contented one!
My son got sandfly bites when he vacationed in Savannah, GA years ago. You have my sympathy (slightly, considering you got to go to Jamaica!) Thanks for the good wishes for the new year.
“Life in temporary death” Thank goodness it’s only temporary. So good to read your poetry again, dear friend … Blessings to you in the New Year 🙂
Thanks Heidi! I was down with a nasty flu – and recovered just in time to sneak away to Jamaica for Christmas – lucky, lucky me!!! I’m back, full of sandfly bites mind you – but relaxed and ready for a new year to begin! Happy New Year to you, too!
so glad you had a relaxing time!!! looking forward to what you will be sharing with us in the new year!
You are so sweet. Thank you…
From Jamaica to snow? But you seem happy to be home. Happy New Year.
Happy New Year to you, too! I think celebrating a new year in SPRING would be a lovely change. 😉 May you write with passion and joy in the year to come…
Thank you 🙂
Beautiful poem and love the photo too! Perfect that I clicked on this today because it’s snowing right now where I live. Happy New Year, Melody!
Thanks Madilyn! Happy New Year to you, too! May you experience joy and hope as you continue to write of your experiences with passion!
