flakes with substance
fluffy ground cover
brings depth to branches
freshness in the air
ripples mimic a sandy beach
sparkles glisten - guiding the day
I like stopping and noticing during my day and I've begun pondering what I might write as I notice. I've decided to focus on the noticing and maybe try to keep the emotion out of my pieces right now. This is proving to be a bit challenging because I really just wanted to write, FINALLY, snow that covered the branches and turned my world into a miniature snow globe! Maybe I can use these tidbits I gather as I slice during my poetry writing unit that is coming up in my classroom. This morning is probably only the third snowfall worth talking about in Ohio because the snowflakes were finally big enough to change the scenery around here. It wasn't the amount of snow, we all went to school but it was enough to make my soul settle.
