    Falling Snow

    The sky is a dull gray
    After yesterday’s
    Half-foot deep falling snow
    I sit here
    With shoveling to do…and work to go
    And though
    The snow has stopped falling
    The cold will soon set in
    I look forward to the day
    When spring begins
    ~ And winter is at its end
    But then
    The cycle will just begin anew
    The summer
    The fall
    And yes, winter, too
    With its subzero temperatures
    And freezing rain
    The relaxing cold
    Before it snows, again
    All part of the cycle
    Here in Near North’s way
    The cold before the snow
    Almost every day

    for some reason
    i love to shovel snow
    i guess its the knowing
    that when i'm done
    i'll go inside snuggle up in
    my great great grandmother's quilt
    hot cocoa in one hand
    and a wonderful book in the other

    sorry the subzero temps
    have to be a burrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    i understand that you left NY for NC coastline, and you may be feeling a little left out because you're not seeing as much of the white stuff as you're accustomed...so, let me be the first to invite you to shovel my drive whenever you start itching to revisit your past. yes, i would watch you from inside the house...as you get your fill.:)...and not question my manhood at all.

    we are a product of our environment.

    be blessed.​

    well, it did snow last night...they're predicting more today
    so, anytime you're in the mood...just come on my way
    the temps are sure to dip tonight...'round twenty degrees below
    the sun is shining brightly right now, but everywhere you look there's snow
    so...
    come on down
    ~ or should i say "up":)

    THANKS for reading.
