first snow...the morning after

first snow...the morning after

it is stillness dazzling white...
it is a lone leaf whispering goodbye
to it's bare branch
and floating down to sleep on
blankets of fluffy jewels
glittering in sunbeams...
it is coolness welcomed in
through windows cracked open
and a crisp-air kiss
on a warm cheek turning rosy...
it is playful rhythms of
frosty melt
drip, drip, dripping off eaves
and flying free....
it is water blue
glanced through naked trees
and tiny teasing icicles
wanting to play at the liquid surface...
it is black and white magpie
hopping happy in the empty yard
finally king on his own
frosty bird-feeder throne...
it is pillowy white clouds
thrown onto sky-blue duvet
and painted jet-stream stripes
that disappear...
it is everything wrapped 
in stillness dazzling white.
