Outside My Window (repost)

Snowflakes and crows
My thoughts with the trees
Chase after each other
On the wintrey breeze

Black feathers crisp
Against hills covered white
Sun blotted out by the grey
Tops of trees swaying slight

Bare branches like arms
They are reaching for me
Embraced by chilly dark dancing
Of snow, crows, and trees

All at once wrapped in a silence
Bundled up by the drift
Minuet moves to stillness
Like those mountains, I sit
