Cold quiet covers the land
preserving all revelry for another day.

People living, children laughing,
birds singing, dogs barking.

All this seems to be silent,
more than silent, almost calmly dead.

Ice forms on the windows
like some crystal painting
on a canvass of glass.

All seems serene on the outside,
on the inside life stirs anxiously,
awaiting the thaw of springtime.

When all will seem to new again.

People living, children laughing,
birds singing, dogs barking.

Will be music to the ears,
freedom does that to the living I've heard,

Stretching the wings so to speak,
like an eagle flying south,
on the wind. . . . so. . . quiet.

Timothy Michael DiVito c1986
“On the wind. . . so. . .quiet”

I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
