December Weather

by Loren Horton

Snowfall glitters
Starlight glimmers
Points of brilliant light
Shimmer on the glaze
Of ice-bound streams

Stillness hovers
Hushing the fluttering flakes
To mute repose
Across the sheeted earth

Calm enfolds the scene
As branch and twig and bush
Keep silence
In the light and in the dark
While snowflakes fall
