snowfall happening on empty school grounds
listen to the quiet in the middle of a snowfall
watch my puppy chow chow leap into my every bootprint
watch a stranger smile and wave at me and say hello
watch me wave back and tell her to enjoy the snow
notice how she is still smiling as she walks past me
notice how my eyes never leave the performance factor of her walk
notice how my puppy chow chow tries to yelp like a big dog
listen to us laughing carelessly while visions of sneaky snowballs dance in our heads
see how the conversation starts the smoothest in the freezing cold as our noses run with glee
i bet we are wondering deep inside....'i wonder what will happen when the sun comes back out'
