Colors in the Snow

blue snow small

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 truth

Elizabeth Williams About Elizabeth Williams

I am a single mother and a full time student at Saint Martin's University majoring in Accounting. Most of my time is spent studying, parenting, doing house work and Tae Kwon Do with my six year old son.
I have been writing poetry as a creative outlet since my young teen years. I also performed ballet and jazz for ten years and played the trombone for 5 while growing up. My music tastes are very eclectic. I enjoy writing in free verse with metaphors. This blog is the first public show of my work.
I am also inspired to take amateur pictures of nature and family. Some of these are posted with some of my poetry. I hope to inspire people and touch them with my words.
