Damp and gloomy here,
somewhere in a frozen air,
snow falls thick and cold.
I close my eyes and find I‘m
there, a billion snowflakes circling round
my cabin on the mountain.
Inside my own snow
globe, crackling fire inside, I
watch the world of white.
We searched all day to
find a Christmas tree. Our first
day spent together.
There are fleeting moments when
the whirlwind stops, and silence pours back
in, just me, the cat, the tree.
Points of light pierce through,
I find myself again in
memories of you.
