Old Man Winter wakes from his nap.
Peeking over the ledge,
he catches a glance at the world below.
"I wasn't asleep for that long," he says
shaking his head in disbelief.
Bustling chaos fills the streets.
He calls for Mother Nature to come take a look.
"This just won't do!" she says.
Their heavy hearts meet.
With eyes locked, their smiles shine.
The dance is ignited.
Winds roar and clouds thicken.
A collision of mighty strength and grace.
And so it begins.
Falling ever so gently.
Layer upon layer blanketing the earth.
Tranquility's gentle magic is cast.
Muting all the earth's sounds.
A city frozen present in time.
Stillness comes to the busy minds.
Peace is upon them.
The message is clear.
"Be still and listen.
Moments of reflection are upon you."
