Thoughts and Fears

while random thoughts 
and fears roar around 
      in your mind,
   last night's snow,
   makes the world 
      so beautiful;

it just lies quietly, 
   waiting for me  
to shovel it away.

the weather forecast 
      is not favorable.
   we may not go 
on our planned trip,

our planned shopping 
is not so important 
      in a time 
   of pestilence 
      and danger.
