Eye Candy Friday +20

C. R. Shafer

You drop white glitter from
the heavens.
It kisses my face
with such gentle, cool touches.
Smiling brightly,
I stand in the yard alone,
my eyes closed, embraced.

In the morning, I rise
to see the beautiful spread
You have cast out to greet me.
Solace, peace
cross my face as I gaze
through the window.

As I ready myself for the day,
(scarf, gloves, and hat)
I wonder what message it is you send
That one has to protect themselves
from the cold
of such beauty granted to us.
