it snowed here last night.
just a dusting, really.
not enough for even one bowl of snow ice cream
but enough to cause the roads to be icy
we spent most of the morning
with our noses to the window
taking in the beauty of the freshly-articulated trees
wondering if we can make it up and down the hills
on our daily walk.
i love the quiet stillness
the snow brings
and the blue air.
there are those who will explain
the hue and stillness
with great authority
using numbers and
but they’re only theories, really.
educated guesses, really, that make some feel better about the world and themselves
sometimes we don’t need to know why
we just need to enjoy and revel in
while it is.
