First Snow

Little flakes of magic,
falling like a whisper from heaven.
Mommy wonders,
should she wake her sleeping children?
She waits…
It falls heavier and faster,
picking up its pace
like her excited heartbeat
as she eagerly awaits the opening of eyes.
She can wait no longer.
At first,
sleepy eyes don’t register the sight,
snowy, wintery.
She stares right past.
Then it clicks.
Eyes meet snow.
She startles.
She gasps.
Her little eyes twinkle with sheer delight.
