Florida Snow

There have been reports of a slight chance of snow in southern Florida.

I am skeptical.

But, the snow has worked it’s way into my dreams and thus, a poem (for Sam, who has never seen snow):

Last night I had a dream

it snowed in Florida. The sun

was out and you were asleep

so I woke you up.

We ran outside–

you were so excited

and so was I. We were running

through the snowflakes

which were big, yet light

and delicate.

I took two pictures

of you in the snow,

and looking back at them later

you looked

as excited

and as beautiful

as in real life.

No snow clouds in sight last night in Sarasota
