another snow day

15 January 2011 Comments Off on another snow day

Every noise is muffled
and subdued.  And just as I
marveled at the amount of light and
brightness this fall,
now I cannot get
over the snow –
covering everything with its
silencing white.  We’re trying to take advantage
of the beauty while it lasts,
walking and sledding,
teaching the oldest to ski.

Today has started out blustery and cold,
the luster of sun on snow absent, while
low hanging clouds loom over with the
promise of more on the way.
There is knitting to be finished,
a birthday gift to be wrapped up,
and yet I keep slowing,
watching the snow swirling
in endless fascination.
