ice crystals

ice crystals and flakes fall down
covering my deck …
dashing my hopes and plans
with each white fleck

ice crystals grow heavier;
thin flakes grow thick …
children’s hearts dance and leap
hoping they will stick

ice crystals, like pixie dust
shimmering in the light …
a blanket of fresh and new
hiding dirt from sight

ice crystals — talk of the town —
the only news is weather …
as they fall from the clouds,
families come together

ice crystals halt busy schedules
making time stand still
young and old alike gather
at the window sill

ice crystals — what can you do?
you just have to smile …
and maybe you secretly hope
the cold stays for a while

ice crystals will fade soon;
ice will melt away …
i’ll enjoy the peace and quiet
of this rare snow day.
