And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [His is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe.] — Colossians 1:17, Amplified Bible
There is this calm that descends
with a covering of snow,
and if you listen, attend your ears
deeper into the quiet cold,
you will hear the slow echo
of earth freezing, trees shaking,
and in the moment the air turns
into solid particles, there is this
barely perceptible sound
of breaking, thousands of ice
shards in thousands of flakes
waking into the geometry of snow.
