Poetic Asides November Challenge Day 21 prompt "permission poem"

Allow Me To

Snow falling thick as down
Is blanketing our yard
And the roads around here
Muffling sounds so thoroughly
It is as if I have been
Transported somewhere new

Everything looks pristine
All the flaws in the landscape
Covered over at least
Temporarily giving
The illusion of a fresh start
That extends itself indoors

In a psychological manner
Unexpectedly freeing, and for
Awhile I find the quietude
Seemingly able to allow me
Much needed distraction-free
Time to breathe, then write.
