Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Memories of snow sculptures AABB 5 quatrains, 10 syllables per line
Snowflakes falling are one of Nature's gifts.
Formed by many winds to create snowdrifts.
Resembling mini majestic mountains.
Three feet of fluff falls into flat fountains.

Let the kids play in the snow with vigor.
Because most won't want to, when they're bigger.
Before you know the little ones have grown.
Yet cold comes each year chilling through the bone.

Try to make out the pattern by Jack Frost.
Snowflakes dance on the air aimlessly tossed.
Pretty to see unless on your windshield.
If you don't scrape off you'll be in the field!

Shoveling the sidewalks and the driveway.
Is the worst part on this cold Winter's day.
Gazing to the heavens I'm now spellbound.
As the snowflakes slowly fall to the ground.

Gently they fall, as the wind makes them dance.
Frozen waves of snow begin to enhance.
Watching them fall, swerving then quickly shifts.
Reminds me of playing in the snowdrifts.
