Winter

My garden waits
        for the first snow.
Yesterday I smelled it
                     on the wind
        Tomorrow the dance
               of a thousand soft flakes.

Dudes, I'm not kidding. It's less than an hour after I posted that, and now it is SNOWING.

Send some snow over here please, please, please. My kids have been waiting for snow since late-November.
Thank you.

Well, it was a short-lived joy. I think it snowed for 30 minutes. Ground is still brown. If we get more, I'll send it over to Hungary :)

It finally looks like we are getting snow here in Helsinki. I can smell it. We had räntä (=really wet snow) yesterday, but that did not last long. But today it is -4 C and I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
