Graceful Free-Fall

Snow Maidens

by Air Spirit

Friendly fire warms me.
       I melt-
          surrender to crackle and calm.

Snow maidens float by
into earth's eager arms.

The world and I
     cuddle-cozy voyeurs
          captivated as Dainty Snow-Diamonds dance.

Virginal white gowns lace the air
     in graceful Free-Fall
          full of Wonder-Love.

Gaia slumbers-
     beneath pristine blankets of white  
          a bed invites Burden to rest.

Eyes awaken delight
     eager to see heart-beats of

Sleepy-serenity beckons-
     Washes, cleanses 
         restores me.

I succeed-
     Lose myself 
          Win Tranquility. 

Wisps of white-wonder 
     Wander, sway, waltz by and bye
          on the arm of white [k]night partners.

Somnolent snow-stars
     shine follow then lead 
          sky ballerinas who pirouette in silhouettes
               on Sky's dance floor. 

Heaven and Earth
     eternal primordial lovers
          applaud another stellar performance...







Nikki Giovanni says it best:

"once a snowflake fell
on my brow and I loved
it so much and I kissed
it and it was happy and called its cousins
and brothers and a web
of snow engulfed me then
I reached to love them all
and I squeezed them and they became
a spring rain and I stood perfectly
still and was a flower ..."

When I watch snow fall, I feel my soul, light as a feather, vast as the universe, float across the miles... I free-fall... I fly footloose, sail, drift, caress the trees and joyously greet my fellow-forest friends, who come to play in the snow... we twirl, dance and delight in each other's company... Snow speaks to my heart in a frozen-fever... and music says it best:
