First Snow…

The streetlight suddenly lost its brilliance

as snow drifts down from the sky.

White darts indiscriminately shoot about

seeking a target to embrace.

Pale grass and brown leaves now frosted

in the purest white.

For a moment a gentle blanket of calm covers the ground,

uninterrupted by even the slightest imperfection.

Soon footprints change the view,

as kids joyfully play while chased by pets in this winters gift.

All is well.
