waiting for the first snowflakes

entry picture

waiting for the first snowflakes



red, yellow, and orange

have long since gone


grass has turned brown


frost has covered the land


afternoon sun is low

in the southern sky


geese have flown

in the blue heavens

south for winter food


squirrels gathered

nuts and stored

them in their nest high in the trees


next-door neighbor

tuned his snowblower

ready to take on a fierce winter


and I sit by my fireplace

with a good book and a cup of hot coffee


waiting for the first magical snow

flakes to start falling


so I can again smile

like I did when the first snowflakes

fell in our yard all those many years ago




◄ things one can't forget

the tattered old man on Christmas Eve ►
