This is THE most magical day of the year,
The morning we wake up to the seasons 1st snow fall.
7am brought shrieks & screams
& children jumping on my bed.
Snowpants on, digging through the hat/scarf basket & out the door they ran.
This morning called for a pot of hot tea & warm quinoa porridge.
Savoring the stillness of it all before the busy day ahead.

Looking out at the vastness of white
Snow had fallen throughout the night
Footprints in the virgin snow
From whom they come I do not know
Winter it has come at last
Can’t even see one blade of grass
Ice it forms on the lake
But not thick enough to take ones weight
Soon the kids will be here
Sleds out and snow ball spheres
Making angels in the virgin snow
And having fun wherever they go
The day goes and darkness comes
Kids gone home to there mums
The snow falls throughout the night
Erasing all that days snow fights
A clean sheet in the morning light
Ready for that days snow fight.

May you find stillness & beauty in your day!
Three cheers for SNOW!
