With our first snowfall, my winter begins...although many have already had their firsts and seconds and thirds, not unusual this time of year, we're lucky we haven't had more by now.
So I sit and ponder the days to come, will it be a rough one or a mild one, no one knows for sure...but I still think I'll sacrifice a goat to the 'Gods of Weather' for a mild one. Just kidding, I can't even smash a wretched spidey...GROSS!!!
It won't be here long...this time...so I'll enjoy it's beauty and silence as long as 'snow' sees fit.
A first breath or sigh...
you touch a worried shoulder
with a sweet, white kiss.
