Finally: A Winter’s Peace


My soul has been sleeping

finally rest is at hand

the snow has capped the mountains

peacefully coating the land


The time has come

for a long winter’s nap

so much holiday cheer

all my energy has been zapped


Taking comfort

feeling the wind in the trees

warmth in the silence

my soul is at ease


There is beauty in the clouds

the sky shines in bright blue

small creatures hibernate

the year is new


Resting in this winter scene

pure as in days of old

taking time to dream

renewal for my soul

I missed you, you know that Lt. Pierce. Glad to see you back. Merry Christmas, happy New Year and other festivities you might have that I don’t know about. Cheers Lieutenant Pierce….. Great poem by the way, but you already knew that. 😀

Enjoy my version:


My mission is over
It has been hard slog
I’ve got a hangover
My Post a Day blog

My soul is now sleeping
Finally rest is at hand
I’m done promisekeeping
Peace covers the land

The time is near
For a long summer’s nap
So much Cloud cheer
My energy’s zap

Taking comfort not tense
Feeling wind in the trees
Warmed by silence
My soul is at ease

Beauty covers the Cloud
The sky shines bright blue
I rest proud
The year is new

My tales have been told
My heart’s out of Cloud scene
Pure as days of old
Gone is Twenty seventeen
