Today's nature

The houses along the street are covered in snow.
A foot high winter wonderland created in an hour.
Now the shovelers come all bundled up and eager,
for the wind is low and the light as clear as the air is fresh.

Snow flies and techniques are varied; a pleasant sight…
How wonderful to have eyes that can see what is…

And now the sidewalks are wet from the heat of the day;
dark brushstrokes separating snow filled yards and snow deep streets.
