Carol Moore's Mountain Moments for December 5, 2007

Mountain Moments

First snowfall
powerdery fluff
laid on red roof
cracks of trees
gone by nine
a flake here
and there
dancing
on the cold air
silver gray skies
opened to let
thousands
of flakes fall
like soft white rain
milk will
disappear from
the grocery shelves
bread will fill carts
then, a quiet will descend
on this small town
as the snow layers
again on the red roofs
