The first snowfall – memories to last

 

Snow crunched underneath,

trees powdered white,

everything underlined in bold,

and all tucked in under a blanket.

Our regular friendly lake – now frozen and icy in its demeanor,

the leaves and Fall arrested in a cold grip.

Sudden gusts of wind – forests shivering and shaking off some snow,

The skies were passive – no blues and oranges today.

Red berries covered in ice:

like paired rubies and diamonds,

a Christmas present for us all.

With the soft light and softer snow – a bright, warm smile

From the all-white and all-pure world,

arose a renewed Joie de Vivre.
