The First Snowfall of Winter

The First Snowfall of Winter


 The first snowfall of winter

Singular crystals of water

floating on currents of air

Drifting through time and space

A syllogism drawn on frosted car windows

Green grass turned white

to crackle under feet while walking dogs

Footprints outlining the path

A new beginning shaping itself

into a new reality

Focusing on visions culled from dreams

Creating an environment

tangible to the eye and the senses

Longed for realities realized

as the first snowfall of winter

Drifts across the landscape

permeating the conscious and subconscious

Cutting and pasting happy times

into a scrapbook in the heart

The first snowfall of winter

Paper white and crystal clear

Covering the earth and blanketing the soul
