Breakfast Snow


One does not expect
to see a snowflake Mid-May
on their weather map app

The flurries had flown
in the dark of the night
before it was time for bed

The creaking hall floor
gave reason to rise
early this Sunday morn

Tired eyes gazed out upon
a windshield dusted in snow
flakes flying parallel to the ground

Dashed down the stairs
with camera in hand
to record for posterity this sight

Snow before breakfast
in the middle of May
so very far from one's home
