like the snow outside

the snow layered
on empty tree branches,
against frosted window pane
insulates, isolates, quiets
the sounds trying to echo
across the hillside

a double V of geese
skate across hard, grey skies
late for far away wintering
faintly honking in the distance
while the neighbor’s dog barks,
mouth moving,
but I hear no sounds

cocooned in comforter strata
I am sequestered
far from your production,
watching your lips forming
words I will not hear,
sounds I do not process

    well done Mims — love the use of sequestered, and the image that stanza paints.

    The above for me – beautiful Mimsy

    Now this real Whimsy Mimsy, the real master of words & not the manipulator who has to take support of erotic expression to paint a classical image, you are a master poet according to my understanding of English language.

    I love you & your word which may be compared to great original poets of all time.
    in your profile picture you look like a small baby but you are not, you demonstrate the highest level of maturity. Love you. small baby
