This is the closest to snow we've come all winter.
for it's pretty pure white,
and soft, downy flakes,
for turning the whole world into a winter wonderland,
if I'm going to have to leave my house at some point
(and inevitably, I will; one cannot survive on cookies alone)
I'd prefer to not have to tramp through a knee-high snow bank, or scrape 6 inches of ice off my windshield, or accidentally plop my foot right into an icy puddle.
So for now, these sparkly sweet flakes will do.
