A New Start

Sharing my poetry with you today.

New fallen snow
Is an amazing sight
Covering everything
In brilliant white

The sparkling diamonds
And fiery hues
Seem blinding
In the sun.

Like a zillion prisms
Reflecting the rainbow
Is the promise
Of God’s mercy
To forgive and
Cleanse everyone.

New, fresh, virginal
Unmarred by man
Or beast
Unlike a shroud
That merely hides
The ugliness underneath.

The snow,
Permeating deep,
The old trails
The places
Where we once trod

No longer exist
Because of
The forgiveness
Of God.
