first snow

i)

first glimpse of first snow
lightens the pre-dawn
glowing Christmas light blue

ii)

low rumbling snow truck bangs
spark throwing scraping
steady back up beeping
turnaround tires spinning
enough to wake the tiredest monk

  5. hahaha...yeah, I remember those noisy snow trucks. worse, sometimes it would knock down the mail post as it backed up in a hurry. snow, it is nice as it's coming down and you can have a choice to stay in the house. it goes down hill afterwards. enjoyed reading this.

  9. Hi OO, very whimsical look at the beginning of Winter's reign, but if it wasn't the plow it'd be the garbage truck ;-)
