Snow-Kissed

I am younger each year at the first snow. When I see it, suddenly, in the air, all little and white and moving; then I am in love again and very young and I believe everything.
     -----Anne Sexton

Walking home last evening after a lovely dinner with my dearest neighbors, we were greeted with giant snowflakes. What a surprise. There we lingered, caught in the thrill, morsels of snowflakes kissing our cheeks.

Gravity ceased to pull its heavy hand, and time lifted us all the way back to childhood.

Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.
      ------Mary Oliver, “Snowy Night”

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.
       ---– Lewis Caroll

Howl-worthy.
Snow flurries began to fall, and they swirled around people’s legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.
       ------Sarah Addison Allen

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower, 
And bread to the eater,
     ------Isaiah 55:10

Christmas, New Year, Winter, Snow
For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
       ------Isaiah 55:12
Christmas, Stars, Snowflake, Banner
With every falling flake, a unique spark of interest falls from heaven.
