This past winter, our little farm was blanketed with over a foot of snow for several weeks. And, I have to confess, I loved it! Truth is, I’m still a bit like a schoolgirl when it starts to snow each year.

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more

“Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people’s legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.”
“When snow falls, nature listens.”
