It's Snowing
Julie Creighton


The silence woke me up,
So much quieter than usual.
Like a muffling blanket
Has been thrown over my roof.

Those little vibrating
sound waves
Are having trouble reaching my ears.
Winter’s pesky white flakes
Are getting in the way.
The land is still and quiet.

“Hush!” said Mother Nature,
And the Earth obeyed.

Julie Creighton is retired and lives with her husband of 50 years on a ranch in central Texas. Although she has always enjoyed reading, Julie's appreciation for poetry really developed late in life. She began writing poetry after a girls' trip where the theme was to bring and share favorite poems. At the end of the weekend,  each wrote an original poem to share with the group. Julie enjoyed this new experience so much that she has begun sharing her experiences and thoughts through poetry. Your Daily Poem has moved her to want to share her poems.

Snow has its own special silence.

Love the "hush of Mother Nature," snow does quiet our world until the plows perform.

There are lines in this poem that I'm tempted to steal--but, I won't! The more times I read this, the more I get from it.
