A Joyful Moment

Dunes of white blanket our landscape,

crystal stalactites drape barren trees,

zig-zag tracks lay frozen in time.

Little ones in colorful coats,

hats, scarves and mittens

take playful aim at each other

while mother watches,

sipping cocoa, recalling her youth.

A joyful moment shared by all

who answer winter’s winsome call.

  1. I got a lot of images from the first few lines (a desert, a post-ice age world, a tundra and family of wolves or foxes, and then a simple moment of family enjoyment), which was a nice feeling and change of pace.

    I love your imagery and the rhyming couplet at the end, too.

    Happy holidays.
