A blanket of white fell over our town once more in the early hours of Monday morning. I peeped out from my bedroom window (3am) and the world seemed so fresh and new - tree branches wrapped in white fur with sculptured gardens beneath.

Unfortunately it wasn't long before the snow turned to sleet and the sleet turned to slush -miserable conditions for walking.


Little flurries fly past the window,

spirals spinning softly

with winds breath pulled this way

and that, a blanket of quiet

then gone.

We haven't had any snow this year, all our snow came before Christmas.

Ooooh...lovely poem! There should still be plenty of snow on the ground in Michigan when we arrive. Here in the Pacific Northwest the crocuses are pushing up, as are the daffodil and tulip shoots. I get to experience the beginnings of spring twice this year, as it doesn't hit in the colder climate of Michigan until late March, or so I've been told.
