Perfect Timing

Hurriedly through the night it came
Blanketing the ground in white
A storm of raging wind and snow
Late one Christmas Eve night

It came to us with little warning
A blizzard of blinding white
While families bowed their heads
Giving thanks for the birth of Christ

The winds did howl like a wolf
And snow drifts halted travel
The dark night was black as pitch
Emergency crews were frazzled

Then as the night gave way to dawn
They found the silver lining
Families snowed in for Christmas
Seemed winter had perfect timing

Beautiful and perfect timing also in your quatrain Lolita. Sometimes that is what it takes, to get people top slow down and realize just what is important in life. A perfect snowed in Christmas such as described in this one Lolita. Love, Moses

I can relate to this one living in North Dakota. We were snow bound for Christmas this year. Nice use of imagery. Keep on writing! Karen
