Fall Snow Fall January 13, 2011

Filed under: Poetry — heartwriter @ 12:06 am

Just hours ago my world was white

covered in fresh snow.

Coming out of the movie theatre last night I shouted,


As carefree and light as a school girl

my heart beating with the possibility of everything

coming to a halt

duties put aside, agendas on hold

while the sky dumped beauty in my lap.

I stayed up late, watching it fall

as curious as a puppy, practically

wagging my tail in delight.

Alas, I awoke to slush, snow no longer falling from the sky

I wanted to cry as if that

would bring it back

the symbol of all that is well in the world

a mark of quiet on my loud brain

a reason to pause.

For now with it all melted away

I no longer feel justified in just sitting,

looking out the window.

    Except you weren’t just sitting… you were filling your cup!

    You wrote this as if you were in my house with my kids….they were saying the same things….especially excited to play in the beauty of the snow! I have to give them credit – they went out in the morning – in the rain and gathered as much of it together to build until they were soaked and had to have their coats dried before going to school. What a walk that was….not as much fun as snow but fun never the less.
