"The Beauty of December"

photo and poem by gigi ann
Decembers Beauty
When the days are short
And the nights are long
When we can curl up by the fire
And read a good book, or sing a song.

Decembers Beauty
When snowflakes softly fall and 
Make not a sound
Beautifying all they touch and surround
While dancing on my windowsill and
Covering the trees with sparkling fairy dust.

Decembers Beauty
When the moon shines down casting its glow
Making my lawn shine like tiny diamonds glistening
While the man-in-the-moon casts his light down... 
 On all the beauty here below.
Decembers Beauty

I could see all of this as I read it. A blanket of snow that covered everything and sparkled like diamonds on the trees. I wanted to call my brother over, we call him the Mexican Santa Claus, to read this because I knew that even though we'll have no snow for Christmas, this would have brightened up his day.
I think when he gets home I'll share it with him. It was beautiful.

You paint such a pretty picture with your words. I love the "sparkling fairy dust" and the diamonds glistening.

Thanks for reading "Snow Day" here:
