It caught me by surprise this morning-
the while blanket sifting over branch and lawn.
Normally I have watched all forecasts
for snow for days and see
the approaching weather systems.
The stunning contrast of chair,
bench and birdbath,
And then the edges rounded
and slipping off gently.
And the reminder that yes today-
my sins have been made-
as white as snow.
Oh- a good day indeed.
