Snowfall — An Image

“Snowfall” — C.Birde, 3/17

She pulls

the blankets up,

tucks us in,

and encourages us —

just a little longer

to rest.

  1. This is sweet… and immediately conjured up an image from a very long time ago (over 50 years). My mother coming into the bedroom “tucking us in for the night”. An intimate ritual long forgotten. Lovely. Thanks for that Carrie.

    • Thank you, Chris, and thank you for sharing that memory. There is some part of me, even now as an adult, that responds to “snow days” like a child — no school! Hot chocolate! Unstructured day! Here’s to all our mothers, Mother Nature, in particular 🙂
