Early December Snowfall

Snowflakes gently dance outside my window,
swirling slowly,
sometimes catching an updraft
and rising a little,
but mostly on their journey down
to blanket the ground.

The flakes land amidst
blades of grass,
still green,
trying to stand upright
and not be weighed down
or covered with white snow.

The trees are barren now,
save for a few stubborn leaves;
the snow enhances
the brown landscape,
contributing to the loneliness
but bring peace as well.
