Quiet Sunday

November 28, 2010

A silent whiteness everywhere

Sky and soil of the same shade

Pale and grey in the early morning light

A palpable coldness through the window

A curtain that softens the wintery touch

Snow on aย  quiet Sunday morning.

    I’m not ready for snow. But when it comes I hope it’s just like the snow you describe here!

  3. Many thanks for your kind comments! I am enjoying looking through your beautiful pictures as well! I especially like the ones of the countryside. Switzerland is beautiful! I hope to go someday ๐Ÿ™‚

    You can hear the silence. I can feel the softness of the curtains as you gently pull them back to admire the white world beyond.

    What a lovely picture. I think snow is so beautiful,
    yet I am not ready for it. Too cold brrr.

    Such fine mood:
    So light and silent
    cool and soft
    and cold and beautiful:
    I love your beautiful picture and your poem!

    That is a soft and comforting image. Interesting how a simple curtain provides a refuge from the cold.

  10. I love this picture – it is subtle and beautiful, and suits the words perfectly.

    What a picture you paint with your words, Isa. The silence of snow, the peace of Sunday, the gratitude for the warmth indoors while all is cold outside.
    Most unusually we have here too, but I expect it will all be gone by Monday.
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Janice. x

    Bonjour Isa.

    Very artistic photo and lovely poem.

    Which is better
    I cannot say
    but I love both of them.

    Je te souhaite un bon dimanche.
