FIRST SNOW

I apologize for my absence.  I’ve been swept
away with festivities, it seems; but I’ve time
for a haiku, and I'm looking forward to curling
up by the fire for an evening of poetry from all of you.

First flakes have fallen
The world looks fresh and new
Would that it were true

  1. Beautiful ~ sigh ~ indeed, the purity of a blanket of white snow, often enfolds a harsh irony.
