I was delighted to see a light snowfall had arrived during the night,unanticipated.

covering a rather dull yard and driveway with a bright virginal white. my thoughts wandered...




The gift

A joy to see fresh snow this morning

dusting the lawn as frosted mint

light and airy it fell without warning
last night to my astonishment 

covering flaws and errant leaves

a veil of first communion white

I wish that those who would believe 

in mercy love and charitable light

could surprise us all and gently weave

a morning swath of  calming salve

to counter chicanery's mean resolve

Today graced your world with snow, and the world at large with a "calming salve," we hope.

Beautiful writing.
