50 Words for Snow

If the Eskimos have fifty words for snow,
              I feel as though I ought to try to have at least half that number
to even come close to grasping
                                how to describe the greens of this spring day.


  1. Yesterday as I was driving home with a numb mouth from the dentist's, the rain turned to sleet and then to hail. The blossoms were hanging on with tenacity. Around me was green. In spite of heavy rain/sleet/hail, some drivers neglected to turn on headlights or use blinkers when changing lanes to get a few yards ahead. I put lip balm on my lips - at least it was the vicinity of my lips - and I chose to listen to my DINO cd and know that snow in April will surely bring something colorful in May.

  2. I often think that both spring & autumn beauty is enhanced by stormy skies. Something about the contrast.
