    Snowy Afternoon

    Snowy Afternoon

    The wind blows the snow off
    the tree branches.
    So cold only the creaking trees
    break the stillness.

    Nestled under the rhododendron
    sits the stone
    garden bench.
    The shape of a round bottom
    and glove imprints
    left behind.

    Boot and paw prints
    crunch up the porch step.
    The shovel leans crooked
    against the railing.

    Noone is here
    except the chug of the
    chimney fire
    and the relentless wind.

    Good job Buh. Particularly like the final stanza

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    Thanks for stopping by and providing positive feedback. Trying a new style- different from the last 10 poems about people. More atmospheric

    Like Jerry Baldy I liked the final stanza best.
    "...the ramblings of a narcissistic, self-obsessed, deranged mind."
