drops of snow

they really do 
look like
drops of snow

clusters of white
covering the sheltered whereabouts
along the pathways
through the woods

whiteness so pure
little beads of clarity
after a season of glitter
emblems of fresh starts and new beginnings

the children pray
let it snow... let it snow...please, let it snow
and cover us with your blankets of white
dreaming of hills and sleds,
blades on ice,
and three tiered men of rolled up fun

but the gifter at the door
is not winter but spring
being overly generous with buckets of rain
and more and more of the same



  1. lovely words, erica! We will see these pretty delicate flowers in another month or two! Lovely photos as well :)

  2. Beautiful words this morning, and photos. Can't believe you have snowdrops already. Have a wonderful day. xo


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
