Outside I looked today,
Taking a break from the dreariness of a windowless office
To discover the first snowfall of the season.
Peering at a spectacular swirl of powdery white
I took delight in the quietude of snow steadily falling,
Illuminating the tops of trees and framing window panes.
Filled with a sense of peace and a bit of magical wonder
Back to my endless tasks I returned,
With renewed spirit.
