a New Year-again
As the time meter was getting ready to have an annual reset our desert region, so commonly clothed in hot and dry- had an inverted moment similarly recalled by some long-time locals as “not since the seventies or eighties” and became very cold and wet- yes, it snowed.
Fleeting as it was, the landscape was indeed transformed
After such a windy night before- oh how it stormed with howls and feirce
Then single fluffy flakes were seen to hurry forth; began to stick
And soon our drab and rocky land replaced by magic true white blanket
So, captured by digital means and a single snowball saved in the freezer
it was gone then, melted within seemed like mere minutes- a rare moment gone
