Awakening Site

A surprise this morning upon wakening
Pulled open the drapes
Snow is falling!

Why not?  It is Winter here in Tennesse
Just a surprise that is all
No weather report last night to say

Snowflakes were larger than normal,
Unbelievable that each snowflake can be different.
Falling into the warm street they melt
 Still roof tops and yards getting whiter by the minute

Red Cardinals seeking the feeders
They linger in the trees so bare
Calling to their females to gather
He sees the feeders at last

Snow still falling, landing like a blanket
Pristine and white
as far as  I can see
From my bedroom window its a welcoming sight to me.

  1. I said I, first, hope to reach 80. Then get as pretty as you, and third, still have my blog.

  2. Lovely orange sky photo. And that cardinal in the tree is beautiful. Nice poem, too.

  5. I do not know what a wake snowing, here it does not snow, only in the mountains and far south of the country, and although I live in the south, not enough to have snow, so it should be a nice experience, but cold.
    A hug
