Snow Day

Waiting and watching the snow fall

piling up on bushes and bare tree tops

cars and time begin to crawl

Waiting and watching until the news drops

Anticipation is met with joy

When the news arrives

we know the next few free hours we will enjoy

celebration involves shrieks and high-fives

All of these reactions are similar

whether you are five or seventeen

but how surprise freedom is spent is where they differ

young ones go and play in the billowing snow and gorge themselves on hot coco cuisine

older ones sleep and watch Netflix and procrastinate Sunday night homework

but to those who drive, remember to be safe on the road

is this trip really worth the work?

Drive with caution and keep the pace slowed

While all the school children have a rosy grin

because of the treat of a snow day

Mother Nature granted them a win

and for school to stay away

Specialty Water

The clouds fall

The sky brightens

The ground is no longer the ground

it becomes something new

something to explore

something to awe at

something to imagine

Snow

it acts like a time machine

it turns back the clock

or at least my inner clock

it makes me a curious, playful child

I bash my face into a pile of new fallen snow

the same as I did when I was two years old.

Snow

makes memories of childhood

a current reality.

Snow

it acts like a teleporter

a drift of snow become Mount Everest

knee deep snow becomes quicksand

my yard becomes a foreign frozen planet.

A simple soft blanket over the land

transforms the ordinary to a land of possibilities.

Snow

makes me travel the world

in my backyard.

Snow

is just specialty frozen water

snow is like 75% of the planet

just a little different.

You

are just a person

you are like everyone else on the planet

just a little different.

You

are a time machine

for me

You

are a  teleporter

for me

You are

something new

something to explore

something to awe at

something to imagine

You are my snow
