We’ve only had a little snow this winter but signs of spring are already appearing. I think I will do a few pastels of snowy landscapes before winter is over. The chalk is perfect for drawing snow. Two poems:
Through a dusting of snow
the crocuses in my garden are showing
an inch of green blades
little soldiers massing at the border of winter.
A few points of tulip cannons
are at the ready.
The morning I dreamed that I went to the theater
in my pink nightgown, I woke to snow
falling in large solitary tufts
drifting down like
tattered ballet tulle.
I love snow men (and women), these were made by my kids in 2010. The first one as you can tell by the sombrero was huge! I think it was about 7' tall.
