Carpe Diem Special - Richard Wright "in the falling snow" - December 10, 20'14

The Snowball Fight - Jan Mari Henri Ten Kate
"The Snowball Fight" oil on Canvas - Jan Mari Henri Ten Kate






morning snowflakes
tumbling lazily from the sky -
children shout happily


falling snow
the children welcome the cold -
throwing snowballs

In the falling snow
A laughing boy holds out his palms
Until they are white.

© Richard Wright

Our Host's haiku:

through the early night
the laugh of children playing -
virgin snow
