The Wind Picks Up And Here Comes The Snow

Updated on February 14, 2017

I Feel The Soft White Powder

It slowly sticks like glue to the ground

Covering each car like tiny little blankets

Quickly each snow flake falls in position

Soon another snow flake joins the one before

Like tiny little gymnasts climbing top of each other

From a distance they all look the same

Under a microscope each are so different

As a cool breeze blows them in different directions

Children everywhere experience the thrill

Hands up in the air

I can see one tongue stretched out far

Trying to catch safely the next white crystal

Before it hits the ground

School was let out early

Loud sounds of laughter can be heard

As excited children pour into the street

Parents and grand parents

Playing their own version of dodge ball

As they run for cover

Big yellow buses pull up

The windshield wipers moving fast

As the rubber squeaks across the glass

The whole place

One big snow globe shaken lightly

Each year the weather has to perfect for snow to happen

Amazing how the snow can tickle our face and eyes

What a cold gentle surprise

Soon there will be mounds of snow pile high

Branches of the nearby trees

Changing color from green to a shiny white

This is a moment of happiness

That can be repeated many times

From place to place

Each of us

Apprecriating those tiny little drops

That travel such a long distance

So that we can have

Oh beautiful snow

      Gypsy Rose Lee I can go out in the snow and come back three hours later because I love walking through it. Making tracks through it. Looking at animal tracks and see where they go. Thank you for reading and caring. I like your comments and all the wonderful things you do. May today bring one more smile on top of all your happiness.

      I am tired of the winter but I know that there will be more snow coming. Right now I would be happy if the snow came and we got it overwith.
