Pure white tiny puffs of
moisture...Each uniquely
sculptured and enhanced
to provide wonderment...Snow is
simplistic but intriguing.

My eyes and mind can not
comprehend the extraordinary
amount of exquisite crystals,
as they accumulate to form
a soft velvet carpet before me.

Beautiful... How the outstretched
arms of nature beckons
welcome to each flake as
they tumble and spiral
to their final resting place.

Sad to see so many dissipate
as they are not strong enough
to sustain their form.
The earth patiently waits
to absorb a new found energy.

Challenge comes and the tasks
change. Comfort is discovered
in the search for happiness.
Truth becomes reality because
we dared to taste the purities of life.
