Silver Threads

Poem By Sharon L. Petek

The fall of snow glistens in white
Like silver threads in a tapestry;
It weaves a winter's tale of old,
With it's silent imagery.

The fence-posts guard it's fortress bare,
Stoic sentenials woven in
Portraying some ancient nordic march
Of heroic deeds and men.

A shaft of gold cuts through the pines
Illumining the barren day;
It's crystal clarity dispels
My tapestry away.

My field is once more only a field,
Covered with snow so deep,
And it must be some illusive wind
When I hear distant, marching feet.

First Cause Of Motion

All that exists in Time of Space
Is as real or unreal as you think;
For the Unmoved Mover does not waste,
Divine Energy hurled towards the brink.

The Bridge Of Souls

Of its three colors, the middle is red.
Being Fire, it consumes any unwary soul,
Daring to venture to Valhalla.
