Small Sensations

The whiteness pours from sky and swirls to ground

and gentle breath of wind makes snowflakes glide

across the frozen river, where hearts pound –

for something in the quiet calm outside

has grown to be a wondrous, hidden guide

which lies within this lover's gentle smile

evoking the emotions that reside

within those bright expressions, all that pile

on top of one another, growing while

the snowflakes fly to tenderness and melt

upon the warmth of clasping hands, an isle

that rises from the cold, which now has felt

the Small Sensations hidden guide has laced

into the snow, where those first loves were based.
