The first snow feels special,

it’s a magical time where excitement

brews and coziness is everywhere.

Snowflakes fall heavily.

Dainty things that are


Darkness sets early by four

in the afternoon, covering the whiteness

in black. Fresh snow with no footprints,

seems as though the planet is empty of


The quietness almost too loud,

thoughts are clearer than before

the only sound for miles. One crow flies

overhead as if it is the last one
