Snowy Walk

Snow crunches under our boots and occasionally we slip into deep pockets of it
Soft beds of brown pine needles help us get our footing
Packed crushed granite is the easiest part of the trail

Flakes fall from time to time
Last night's blanket is fading where the sun is able to shine through
Smooth sureal drifts edge our way

The small pond is iced over
The surrounding tall pines and spruce sway in the wind
Amidst the winter a pussy willow is in bloom
A sign spring in the snow

  1. Your description creates the scene. Last night's blanket - love the personification. Snow - oh, we are so ready for spring!
