First Fall



First snow of winter
Crisp, white blankets smother fields
Gentle drifts, flurries 

Clouds pregnant with flakes
Release icy blasts, blizzards
Bitter cold, frozen

Icing-topped branches
Coated in white crystal shards
Icicles hang tight

Eerie yellow light
Signals mid-afternoon dusk
Bursts of sleet rain down

Sunrise brings new warmth
A slow thaw starts where rays reach
Transform. White to green.
