April Snow?

A strong breeze blew this poem into the “holler” of my head …

“Am I an April’s Fool?”

I think it’s snowing

Whirling, swirling

curls of soft white

Windblown, far-flown

flowers of the sky

I see now

upon closer observation

there are fast-flying flakes

mingled among

drifts of downy petals

Pear, cherry

clouds of pale blossoms

dropped from spring trees

and dark branching clouds

Now I know …

it is snow.

  1. Hello Chris. I think my favorite form of snow is the accumulation of the cherry and apple blossoms on the ground next to my apartment. It is warmer, lighter and full of Spring. Just glad I don’t have to gather them up in my leisure.
