standing statuesque

and gazing at a field of snow.

looked back and back again

to find her still unmoving,

shocked and staring.

“Where is that grassy field I knew just yesterday?” 

she seemed to ask.A Cold World

“What is this sea of white?”

And as I ate a quiet breakfast and sipped my tea

until resigned she turned and walked back

into the forest.

Born and bred in Florida, I suppose the thrill of snow will never fade and even though we lost power last night at 7PM and  it is still gone and we are still struggling with the generator, I am absolutely thrilled to see the first real snow of the year.  And it is soooooo beautiful as the sun shines on glistening heavy laden limbs and the countryside is glowing in pristine white like a young bride.

I went out as quickly as possible to get pictures!
