beneath the sheltering snow

large puffy flakes, a pure white blanket
molded to the sensual curves of the earth

silently covering the sins of the world
under a shroud of frozen perfection

temporarily, but beautifully hiding
unfortunate reality from the accusing sun’s glare

not fixing our flaws, just concealing them
sometimes that’s enough to get through the day
