Looking for Spring


 
We thought the snow part of winter was gone...not yet! More for the next 24 hours.
Part of March Madness, I guess.
 
 
Soft, floating flakes.
 When we were kids, we put out our tongues to lick them from the sky.
Ice cream for the cows, we said.

in upstate NY it was ice cream snow for us!
well before acid rain and all the other pollutants.
it had to be a fresh deep and wet snow that packed well.
we carefully scooped it up into big bowls. Mother then mixed real maple syrup with a touch of vanilla and strizzled it over the snow. it all had to be done quickly!
a heavenly memory that probably tasted horrible! LOL.

I feel the beginnings of a Billy Collins poem in your words. Lovely.
