A dusting of white snow
Falls from the sky
And covers this world
In a beautiful quiet sugar coating
Crystals, clear, white, purity.
A chance now to settle down
Into some winter healing
Playing, resting, cuddling
Yoga before sudden snow squalls
And naps in front of warm fireplaces.
Hot tea to coat the soul
White winter dreams
Emerging through the long, cold, dark nights
Twinkling like the stars
That guide us from above.
It’s just a dusting of snow
For now it’s here
And tomorrow it may be gone
Flying away, melting back to earth
Like the thoughts that stream through
Our warm winter dreams.
I stand here
I dance in the sunlight
A warm breeze blows over me.
I contemplate the movement
Of the seasons
Was it not just cold
Did it not just seem summer would never come?
And yet here we are
Looking over a river
Dancing underneath the beating sun
Laughing under a star filled sky.
Skirts rise and billow out
We are spinning
We are singing along.
The joy of dancing children
All God’s beings
Moving in a sort of praise and gratitude
For this very moment.
Let’s continue to dance away the day
And spin underneath the canopy of the stars
Through summer and into fall
Even when we move inside for the quietude of winter.
Let’s remain grateful
For the way our bodies move
For the way the music reminds us
Of our certain unity and nature to be love in action.
Grant us the ability
To remember gentle summer breezes
On the coldest days ahead
When the dancing is done alone.
A beautiful day
Soft white snow falling down now
Welcome to winter
