    Frozen in Time

    The river still and pale
    Life is frozen in time
    The grass no longer green but sparkling white.
    Trees dance with the flurries lead by wind
    Rocks and trees beautifully highlighted
    The powder skipping around in the breeze
    Pale, frigid, and lifeless yet suprizingly awake
    All is still but the forest is breathing.
    The sky: cloudy and dreary to some
    Mysteriously beautiful and calming
    Beneath the solid river
    Runs an undiscovered world.
    Life hidden away watching and waiting for the sun
    All that looks dead and hopeless is merely asleep
    Resting after a long productive day
    Life is frozen in time

    "the grass no longer green but a sparkling white..." love the description :)

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
