It was only a couple of days ago when we had
a little fling with spring
and the waters of Lake Norman
tempestuously washed against the shore.
Oh baby, it's cold outside...
This tropical girl
revels in seeing snow
and delights in experiencing shivers down her spine.
There is something special about
the hushed beauty of white on white.
It evokes a feeling of being frozen in time.
Yet, a poignant reminder
that everyday is a blank slate (tabula rasa),
for us to constantly journey and lightly tread on.
Even if a single teardrop remains unforgotten
as it drifts away with the tide.
