Winter Rainbow (BarefootWriter)

359 17 8

Phone rings, heralding the news
School Canceled!
Snow Day!
White snowflakes against a gray sky.
Donning boots and snowsuits, we play outside.
Rolling in mounds, creating snow angels,
stacking white balls to make a friend
with coal-black eyes and an orange-carrot nose.
We wrap him in a TARDIS-blue scarf
topped with a black and yellow hat.
Pink nose, rosy cheeks and mom calls us in
for red and green M & M cookies and hot chocolatey-brown cocoa.
These are the colors of winter
to a child
and the young at heart.
