First Snow

Original photography by Navrosedip Kundlas

Snow falls gently

Blanketing the grass lightly

Wind whispers in my ear

Adding on to the cheer

Every footprint leaves a mark

Until it vanishes in the dark

Little paws make a trail

The snow captures every detail

Fur covered in snow

My little puppy looks like a marshmallow

One deep breath is all it takes

So I can smell the snowflakes

Falling through the air

Snow covers every ounce of my hair

It melts on my tongue

The evening is young

My puppy stands still

His heart beating with thrill

Closing my eyes

I know it’s time for our goodbyes

Scooping up my puppy

He smiles, completely happy

And when his brown eyes fill with sunshine

I know there is nothing more divine

As the sun sets

I’m in covered in blankets

Hot cocoa warms my hands

As my puppy stands

I pick him up

Then take a sip from my cup
