haiku: first snow 2022

snow blankets the ground
layered upon the tree branch
floating white crystal

Author’s note: A familiar glow
from outside woke me last night
where upon looking out, I was
greeted by several inches of snow
on the ground. For those of us making
our homes here in middle Tennessee,
we have experienced wildly
varying weather over the last week
from record heat in the 70’s, to tornado
warnings and storms, and now snow
with temperatures in the 20’s. The
snow and cold are beautiful!
