Looking out my window,
Waiting for it --
I feel its grey heaviness in the air,
That silent calm before the storm --
Finally, a few flakes here and there,
Falling gently, tenderly.....
and then --
Pure white confetti falling,
onto my life's parade --
Now with head thrown back,
and eyes closed,
Catching frosted ivory flakes
upon my tongue.....
I'm ten again!
If only for a moment --
"Enjoy the little things in life....
for one day you'll look back and realize
they were the big things." ~ Robert Brault
