Christmas Snow



We had a streetlight outside our picture window,

a play with our eyes tease in the light,

If I could see the flakes drift inside the night,

I was a happy child being blanketed in white


Where we live, a Christmas  without snow,

felt only as real as the imagination  would right

we didn’t want the brown decay of fall tonight

instead, the white wonder cast shadows on night.


Peace, when watching the light become so light

desire the snow, while beauty of life will show

      1. I grew up in Ohio, where it used to start snowing around Halloween and stopped some time in March. My children think it is normal to run around during Halloween without snow suits and Michelin Man coats. Now it snows in January, if we’re lucky, then we have ice storms that knock down electric lines through February. I think when I moved away to go to college in 1988 something strange happened. This has been going on since I got back in 1995.

      2. When I was a child we always had a full snowfall all winter in the Twin Cities and Wisconsin where I grew up – maybe it was because I was only 4 ft tall … the prevailing winds have certainly shifted I suppose. 🙂
