The Snowball Fight

We've had snow on the ground for a good month now. When it was freshly fallen my "kids" all had an epic snowball fight in our backyard. They started by building opposing snow forts, but soon left their fortifications for hand-to-hand combat.
They were pretty worn out by the battle's end, but, oh, did this mother's heart smile!

Winter is . . .

a snowy blanket,
billowing loaves,
failed divinity the texture of silly putty,
and icicles at sunset.

Winter, I will look for your beauty.
