The Softest Kind of Peace
By John Cannon

The lovely light snow
falls gently
into our bare-tree woods,

Small green pines
already sparkle
with a coat of purest white,

A group of deer scamper,
raising puffs of snow-dust,

The birds and squirrels
hustle to find food
before the blanket deepens;

Snow batting covers every surface,
muffling sounds
and smoothing
all the world’s hard edges;

My mind slows down
to match the rhythm
of the steady
falling snow

As the softest
kind of peace
around me.
