White Canvas In American Winter

New fallen snow
City awakes untouched
Footsteps never seen

    That is such a quiet and special time when the snow falls and everything is quiet..Of course, sometimes that snow comes in the form of a blizzrd with the wind, etc..I could just see this scene from your descriptive work..Sara
