Snowfall Surrender

Snowfall Surrender

Thin and lean in the warm humidity I thrive, more suited to a tropical clime

but tonight the snow falls softly and its white brightness is a welcomed respite from gray halos encircle the street lamps Christmas music plays

wistful childhood memories dance around me sledding, with a wealth of years to go I’ve held this grimace long enough it’s time to embrace this season and surrender to the snow
