Thoughts on Snow and Snowflakes… by Gabby


It’s the time of year…Snowflakes, as well as snow are on my mind. Well, living here in PA that’s winter times gift to us. Our gift last night was a few inches of snow, more is expected tonight into tomorrow. Isn’t that a nice way to look at snow and snowflakes in general?  Call them blessings, gifts and embrace the whole snow concept…That’s what I have vowed to do. I was thinking about how each and every snowflake is different. Just like people, every snowflake is an individual. No twin snowflakes, what a disappoint that was to find out let me tell you! Isn’t that a rather amazing thought of no two snow flakes being alike? I think so, not that I have ever chance to analyze any snowflake. They really do melt when you have them in your hand, they land on you face and just disappear!
Thank goodness for those good facial creams, potions and lotions. I kind of think snowflakes are just a bit magicial. When Autumn and I were young we would stick out our tongues to catch a taste of a snowflake. I now, they don’t taste like much of anything. But when you’re young, you embrace these things. The twinnie and I would make up flavors the snowflakes tasted like…We had very good imaginations, what can I tell you? It was one of those wacky little games, asking each other “what does your snowflake taste like?”
Thankfully our parents knew we had just been gifted with those good imaginations. They always went along with the game, never correcting us, what a joy to have Dad and Mom. Other parents might have been stodgy and simply no fun…Making us stop the snowflake tasting game at once. You know, some parents would have done that…I feel sorry for those types. Stifling and stopping all the ponderings, wonderings and all of young minds.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on snowflakes…Do any of you kind readers have any snowflakes thoughts? If so, please share because…Sharing is always fun! 😉 🙂

Much Magic … by Autumn


It’s barely dawn

and a balance of magic goes on

look at all the fun

the day has just begun

yet fairies chase butterflies around

magic surrounds

them all

and the birds call

What a happy tune is sung

and the bells have rung

to celebrate the day

A unicorn frolics in the forest stream

as if in a dream

A pixie hiding with a smile to say

Hello friends, it’s a happy day

The swans seem to agree

they are swimming so free

Not a human in sight

the magic begins with the light

the forest is still it seems

except for some sunbeams

and the sound of butterfly wings …
