Colors in the Snow

Sitting against a snow ridden sky In the time of silence and untouched snow Red is the color of my pain Trees laden with white Sitting still waiting for a bird to land Nothing moves in this time of grey Between night and day Blue is the color of my tears Come to me oh sun Quell the thumping of my heart Melt the snow and let the water run into the ground Bring to me new growth Peeking out at the light of day Green is the color of … [Read more...]
