peace of winter

silence falls with the snow
as if the earth is waiting
breath held
to hear what will come next
waiting for the first trumpet call of spring
no call today
today the world is quiet
peace for the day
for night has faded away
the stars have stretched and yawned
extinguished their candles
one by one
they slumber
the sun climbs
higher and higher
into the sky
searching for travelers upon the road
the empty open road
curled comfortably
under a blanket of white
today the earth will rest
and night will come
as quickly as it left
and the world will wait
as the naked trees
stand in silent guard
for the ambitions of creation to thaw
