A Special Day

A chill runs through the air and I feel myself begin to condense, as do my companions. I watch them with envy as they begin their descent and have the honour of heralding the season that humans call winter.

So I watch in jealousy as my peers bring cheer upon the world below, while they paint it in a crisp pearly white hue. They create a chilly blanket that covers all the surfaces within my field of vision and I smile at the snowy perfection they have the privilege of creating.

I watch as animals and humans alike frolic in the newly christened snowy landscape. Small children dangle their tongues down to their chins to catch a few of my peers with a giggle of joy.

Finally, the day I have been waiting for arrives.

Golden rays of sunlight crest over the horizon and make my earthbound comrades sparkle in the breathtaking light. I admire them as my descent begins and I grow closer to joining my companions in this glorious, snowy landscape.

As I near the earth’s surface, the sound of church bells begins to ring. Voices sing a joyous hymn that floats through the air on the breeze that carries me to the nearest tree branch. As I come to rest upon it I can see round smiling faces pressed against the misty windows of a nearby house. In the background, I see a tree adorned with colourful lights that sparkle and fill my heart with Christmas cheer.

  • I'm so sorry D but I'm a tad confused πŸ˜… Who's the narrator in your story? I'm so sorry, I can be very slow sometimes πŸ˜… But your story was soooo beautifully penned, as always! I loved it!
