Treasure Island

X..... Snow


On my way home at night in the car,
I have to travel still a distance, quite far
Thick flakes in the sky causing some fear
praying for safety for me and my family, dear.

But somehow along the slow ride,
A big joy props up from inside
The peace of the dancing flakes in the night
A feast for the eye, impeccably white.

Some wonderfully sculpted flakes hit the screen of my car
looking like diamonds, the shape of a star
The heat in my car makes them melt all too fast
How I wish, a little longer they’d last

With my eyes kept safely on the road,
I cannot keep out of mind the lovely thought
of waking after the night in the midst of an exquisite sight
with branches of trees in a tight dress of bright white.

    The last lines are so lovely. I admit I have been pining for snow in the enormous heat this year. They are calling it a 'heat dome' alas. I would like to get outside of the dome but I guess that is unlikely at best. (Report) Reply
