Crackles, Scrunches and Squeaks

by Sherry Riter in The Redhead Riter,Weather

To say, “I love snow” is an understatement. I know that it is cold, gets dirty, yadda, yadda, yadda. I still love it!

I awoke to a landscape blanketed a beautiful, sparkling white like fluffy cake icing with sugar crystals. It is supposed to snow throughout the evening and all day on Sunday. I have no idea how deep it will get, but the snow already comes up to my knees. So I took a few pictures with my cell phone when I ran to the store first thing this morning.

Everywhere you look, there is snow.
bird's nest
Doesn't look much like a bush any more.
I love snow.

I like to walk on fresh fallen snow
The kind that whispers and speaks.
It sings a song as I walk along
With crackles and scrunches and squeaks.

I love the crunch of frozen snow too! Nice poem. Louise (arriving all the way from the foothills of the Alps, via SITS).
