first flakes



and with all the talk of denver's
impending first snow,
milla had made it quite clear
she was not excited,
and that her favorite season is summer.
or spring, or fall.
just not winter.
just not snow.

but when those first big flakes began to fall,
she was the first (okay, only)
to grab her hat and coat,
throw on her shoes
and run out into it.

don't worry,
no harm done.
i mean, it was 70-something yesterday,
it can still be that again tomorrow.
a few flakes don't scare us,
yet.

snow already?! I guess you are right.. with the high temps, it can't stick around for too long. Is she expecting "snow" in Colorado to mean the same as "snow" in Russia? She is going to be pleasantly surprised... :) Enjoy!
