Perfect timing.

An afternoon snow storm

was not in the forecast,

yet here it is…

a beautiful, heavy blanket

of pure white snow.

The roads are caked in it

and the snow keeps on falling,

forcing everyone to slow down,

straining to see what’s ahead.

It’s like a little nudge

from the universe:

here’s a clean slate,

here’s a fresh start,

here’s how to start

a New Year.
