     Spiraling   

Not a poet,

yet oftentimes a word

a thought

will cause my mind to

spiral backwards

to the younger days,

to the long gone

younger days

when by a window

the vision

of falling snow

brought to life

within the widened sphere of a streetlight,

when by a window

I would stand transfixed

in the warmth of my home

while in the background

children playing

or watching TV,

the scents of the kitchen

bringing the sense of my home to me

as I would watch the sparkling

white accumulation building

beneath the light of the streetlight,

then, “Honey,” my wife would say,

then from the window I would turn,

and as my wife and the children,

and the six of us,

with our dog expectantly  

standing nearby

would sit

and talk,

and laugh,

as the sparkling white snow

now widening to cover our world

fell to earth...

outside the warmth of my home.

I think when you put words to paper you are indeed a poet Markie and I enjoy all that you share.

Conjures up a vision of a Norman Rockwell painting. Great imagery for us all, and to many who can relate. Patrick

...NOT A POET...WELL, THAT'S YOUR OPINION, BUT IN MY OPINION...YOU HAVE THE 'GIFT' FROM HIM ABOVE AND I AM SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOU SHARING IT WITH THIS SO IMPRESSIVE WORK. THE IMAGERY IS FANTASTIC! BLESSINGS. LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Lovely imagery here, Mark! The whole concept of the family inside the warmth of the home, looking outside as the snow whitens the world....beautiful!

A beautiful way of watching snow fall to Earth. Now if we were only young enough to go out and play in it. Excellent piece, Mark.

GOD BLESS

Postal card imaginary, too perfect because, like a little bird that learned how to fly, all of it is gone leaving a deep longing...
