“a snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky,
and seems like a thing of wonder.”
joy ruled the day in kinder-land.
“the snow fell as softly as a poet’s tears.”
“he sprinkles snow like birds alighting,
it comes down like locusts settling.
the eye marvels at the beauty of its whiteness,
and the mind is amazed at its falling.”

the first sled ride of the year with a pile of my kinders.
the first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event.
you go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up
in another quite different,
and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?
