Bokeh paper snowflake
As the mercury slumps in the cold night,
I watch the stars glow in bright clusters.
I capture the signs of winter in my heart.

Silent snowflakes fell into a white blanket.
The whistling wind adds to the hardship.
In the storm, I saw very few travelers.

Today is cold and clear.
The snow has stopped; the wind is calm.
I will go out and play the child I once was.
