SNOW SURPRISE

The snow touched lightly on the ground,
Swirled around a minute then settled down,
As a breeze shot up the pines mighty trunk,
More flakes seemed to explode, Shooting wildly,
Out over the country side, Joining all the others,
Sun peeking through heavy white clouds full of snow,
Light bouncing off  icy crystals with a prismatic Brilliance,
Sending rays of color darting into crevice and shadow,
Brisk smell of frosted pines all around,
With every breath, Every beautiful sigh,
You look out over the valley below, Feeling the freshness,
The brisk air fills your lungs as your cheeks turrn rosey,
Feeling prickles as if touched by pine needles, You smile,
One moment of peace can change so fast in the mountains,
You could feel the avalanche as it shook the ground,
Your vision blurred as the snow became a white out,

See hun, When you shake the sno-globe it makes all the snow,
Inside fly around,
Wow,  Mommy,  Can I have it?

okay, very creativity, lol love the imagery, I felt like I was there until...I found it to be a sno-globe, but I like how many poems about snow can form into an abstract theme, very ingenious, great read and well written

you discribe it so wonderfully thought i was in the mts. love the suprise ending

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
