Remember fresh fallen snow
Takes you to long time ago
Not sure why it quiets things
Inside snowfall silence sings

Stillness from an era when
World less manic simpler then
White gray swirls from a dull sky
Darkened quiet fills the eye

New snow invites opposites back
As we’re seduced by a polar tack
As cold crisp air invites us out
We’re drawn inside by a fire stout

Freezing chill a bracing delight
Look to the warmth of flannel at night
Labor shoveling heavy snow
Calls a slumber by embers’ glow

Winters greeting of arctic bursts
Arouses one’s tropical thirst
Snowfall is nature’s treasure
Sprinkling flakes a heartfelt pleasure

What was the impact when you last experienced fresh snow and cold?

What does the memory hold for you?
