Sun beams break through clouds
To steal the coats of white trees
Snow painted branches
Lila and I had a slippery walk yesterday morning. The thick clouds and overhanging branches muffled the noise of distance snowblowers and snow plows. A few flurries fluttered down to greet us. When the sun popped out, I worried the branches would lose their coating of snow but the clouds continue to linger. Soon the wind or sun will steal away our world of “snow painted branches.”
To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold. ~Aristotle
What a beautiful poem and peaceful walking area! Lila seems to still love the snow. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Early snow always seems the prettiest. I’m seeing it out my window too as I write this.
Thanks, Mary! Yes, winter is Lila’s favorite time of year. I know what you mean about the earlier snow falls. When it snows here in April, I know it will not be a welcomed sight!
Oh, true! Snow in April is “Yuck.” It was fun to watch my dog go out in the first snow. Her ears perked up as if to say, “Yay, snow time again.”
It’s good to have a dog that likes being outside in the winter! It was good of you to notice Lila in one of the pictures. ❤️
