Sitting in a sanctuary of white
Isolated in snowy nature
A gift of solitude
A place to contemplate
The ebb and flow of the sea

Listen to the quiet sounds
Of seabirds winging across the sky
An ocean churns beyond
Waves thrashing at the sands
Winds now silent after the storm

Beige and whites create art
Abstracts of rippling sands and snowy designs
Nature’s ever changing artistry

Footprints sinking into the sandy crust
Impressions of bird and man
Their signatures soon to be erased
As wind and tides wash all away
A slate once more to be used again

Come sit in this sanctuary of whites
Stay as long as you wish
Contemplate all that is offered
Susan Werby

For all who love to sit in the solitude of snow.

“Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which Nature herself is animated.”
Auguste Rodin
