Once upon a winter’s night
Snow piled high on tender boxwood leaves and a back door light deflected darkness.
The silent world was bathed in down.
Once upon a winter’s night …
… moonshine glowed through spruce trees and …
… bright lights from yonder drilling rig reflected high on falling flakes.
The feathery onslaught covered man and beast. Enveloped in sweet, peaceful silence.
Once upon a winter’s night.
