If finally looks like winter here in upstate NY. I have a love/hate relationship with snow. It’s pretty, fun to play in, and it’s always great to have some of it on Christmas. On the other hand, it makes the roads really treacherous sometimes, even with all the snowplows and salt out. Also, it gets so cold, and I’m happiest when it’s 90 out.
When I was younger, and lived with my parents, our house was out in the country. Back roads, never got plowed, and a 20 minute drive to everything except the small town our mailing address was part of (which, when I was there, included one stop light, a gas station, a bank, and a tiny, over priced, grocery store). I went to college and got a job in the city of Rochester. It was a 45 minute drive from my parents house to there, which wasn’t bad in the summer, but it was awful in the winter. I’d wake up two hours early, so I could have an hour to get ready and an extra hour to drive. Now that I’m not making that commute, I’m about 8 minutes from my job, and everything is a 5-10 minute drive, it’s easier a lot easier.
That was long winded, onto what you clicked on this post for! I wrote this for a creative writing class in college and thought it was a good day to share it.
flowers wither with beauty,
in freezing delight.
Far from the struggles,
stillness that permeates the
glistening under moonlight,
safe from truth tonight.
That’s all I have for you today. Does it snow where you live? Do you like it? Let me know. 😊
