First snow

The last of the clouds that brought Friday’s snowfall move off to show the fading remnant of sunlight for the day. A large dose of winter has arrived.

Creation had grown drowsy in the later days of autumn and removed its colorful garments in preparation for slumber. Now it’s tucked in under a blanket of white until it stirs again on a day far off.

Sleep well.
