The First Real Snow

our first snow beyond those light non-sticking flakes last week fell last night leaving three or so inches and announced the true beginning of winter which appeared without any bravado or an extraordinary early snow which doesn't mean that the rest of the winter will be modest and even when the snow is slight for most of the season there often is an unexpected storm late in the winter which causes havoc and the only redeeming feature is that the winter season is drawing to a close

it happened once in a country far away and alive only in a remnant of memory, a fragment that walks out in a snow that fills the sky with large flakes leaving no room between each flake that adds to layers and layers of white and I walk into the snow and taste snow on my tongue before tasting sweet cocoa hot from the stove
