As I was driving home yesterday afternoon, I saw the strangest sight – white, fluffy down descending from the sky. Yes, my friends, it was snow. Snow.

Every year I dream of snow, hope for snow. It happens so rarely here, and when it does, it brings unmitigated joy. Exhilaration. Magic.

Snow says,
Calm down.
Slow down.
Be still.
Breathe
In and out.
Shhhhhhh.

Snow
blankets
the earth.
Covers
Imperfections,
Blemishes.
Gives one
Nirvana
On earth
For a moment.
Shhhhhhh.
