Silence of Snow

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1038 snow
The quote for today is from “Alice In Wonderland” by Lewis Caroll.


Lewis Caroll (1832-1898)

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”~ Lewis Caroll

sins blatant in blood,
garbage strewn sidewalks and parks–
snow’s purity absolves

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
