oh, look! what do i see?
SNOW? no, it COULDN'T be!!

it doesn't snow in texas; all we get is rain or ice!
but some snow here once in a while would be nice!

but yesterday, it happened..SNOW was flyin';
and my mood brightened without really tryin'!

BIG, FAT, HUGE flakes of white flyin' through the air;
and the sight of it caused looks of surprise ev'rywhere!

it affected business; not many people came to eat;
they were too busy watchin' the snow, said it was NEAT!

got out of work an HOUR early, went out in the snow;
it sure was cold, wouldn't you know!

but i became a kid again, catchin' flakes on my tongue;
it reminded me of ohio and old-time winter fun!

tryin' to walk and catch flakes at once, NOT so easy;
but my mood was happy and the air was breezy!

nearly fell once, fell over my stupid crutch;
GRACEFUL I AM NOT, i KNOW that much! :)

oh, well..i asked for it; wasn't payin' any mind..
the snow was a gift from God, and he sure was kind!

he answered my prayer; i asked for some snow....
and he delivered it in a dazzling natural show!! :)

it SNOWED here yesterday in texas; some areas got as much as THREE INCHES of the white stuff! it sure was pretty, and karla and i were throwing snowballs at each other and catching flakes on our tongues! we were acting like little kids at christmas! it was so reminiscient of ohio; and we enjoyed ourselves EMMENSELY!! :)

by the way..i wasn't hurt when i fell, but i WAS embarrassed! :) scraped my hand a little, but that was it!

Did you catch any snowflakes to keep in your freezer? This would be one way to remember what snow looks like! LOL

This prose was alive with the energy of snow. It captured and framed each flake along with the joy imprinted on your soul. Well done.

I used to enjoy snow but now I just don't like to see it. I've seen snow every year of my life but it really effects my arthritis now.

loved the poem! it is exciting to see snow when it's scarce as her in California, when I go to the mountains to see the snow I feel and act like a kid again;-)

Another wonderful write Karen, reminded me of a time in my earlier childhood when we had our first memorable snow storm, snow like that is a rare event especially this low in the foothills, but when we got it we had a lot of fun!
God Bless

I've had my share of snow. I'm ready for spring. :) Nice write Karen.

I loved it! It brought back a childhood memory of growing up in Texas City and my first ever encounter with snow! I just found this sight and spent a good part of my afternoon setting up my pages. It's a great place to showcase a writer's work. I can't wait to hear from others like yourself who have read and enjoyed what I have written.
Thanks for reading mine! Keep up the good work! Sam

Karen, I was in one of the areas that got more than 3 inches! It was a welcome sight for a change. Most of it was gone by the time it got light this morning though. I'm just glad it was snow and not ice! That stuff causes havoc with the power lines around here! Great poem,,Lisa
