Snow Day

**Credit to Otherwise Engaged Literature and Arts Journal for originally publishing this piece.

Taste now
the different colors
of the sun,
filtered through
brisk winter air.

Delicious dreams
float overhead
just out of reach,
while crystalline hope
clings to trees.

A world of white
sparkling blindness
encasing all,
on a bed of fresh
bleached sheets.

Growing younger
with anticipation,
the child emerges
and takes flight,
on the first snow day.
