We had our first snow today.
When I first saw it,
I halfheartedly smiled from my position,
Peaking from the curtain
Draped next to an occupied bed.
Giant white flakes cover the ground and sky,
And I don’t mind. The light
They reflect and the way they dance
Gives troubled minds a sense of ease.
And as the frigid day wears on,
The falling ceases just as it started,
With me under warm blankets,
And they finally finding peace
After a long winter’s journey.
