Maybe if the snow continues to fall
It will decide to rest upon my lashes.
It will twist up in my hair.
It will strangle my breath to steam.
It will land on my outstretched tongue.
Snow will evoke laughter from every child
From every adult
Despite their efforts
To cry for love.


The author's comments:
I wrote this during the holiday season when my town got hit with a lot of snow. Everyone seemed to be so much happier. I realized that snow can turn even the most serious adult back into an elemantary school child.
