White Blanket of Snow


The snow is falling.

Flakes float to the ground.

A hush falls across the city.

Few cars dare to brave the roads.

Too soon for building snowmen.

Footsteps have yet to marr

the white surface.

A white blanket.

Sparkling clean.

The city is refreshed.

Its sins covered.

A rebirth.

    When I lived (briefly) in New York, I was always amazed at how clean and quiet the city became when it snowed. At least for a little while.

      It’s clean for about ten minutes and then a car goes by. In the suburbs, it stays white a little while longer.
