Winter Dreams

An early morning walk to work
on sparkling silver frost -
so cold, with random flakes of snow
that landed, then were lost.

I saw the gold and red of dawn
in bands across the sky,
but then I had to close the door 
(as always, with a sigh).

I wondered if the snow would last;
if icicles would form,
and men would dig snowdrifts with spades...
Inside the shop was warm!

But when I left, the paths were clear;
I felt the cold again.
No winter wonderland for me:
the snow had turned to rain!

written 3rd December, for Shadow's Winter poem contest

    Yes, rain is depressing. Sounds like the kind of winter we're having so far up here in Michigan. Love, daver
