The Chimes are Still – poem by mare

the chimes are still, beyond my will

no wind, no rain. Snow! it came…

dancing, falling, flurries bawling,

whiteness floating, winter’s doting.

the chill is full, put on the wool

shovel out steps of snow’s great depths

so quiet now… Reluctant Tao.

Silence calls, over snow walls.

seems this surreal stillness of the night, after the snowing stopped, is rather inspiring… :~)
