AND

this only once 
 snowflakes kissed my fingertips -
how wonderful

❧✿❧

this only once -
magic of vacation days 
a blanket of snow

snowflakes kissed my fingertips -
there i was wide-eyed
mouth agape

how wonderful -
 lightness of flurry descent
from the heavens

ENJOY THE MUSIC: Symphony No. 9 ~ Beethoven
He was inspired by the ideals of freedom and equality that were on display during the French Revolution, and his Ninth Symphony celebrates the ideas of brotherhood and fraternity. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony was first performed on May 7, 1824, after he had completely lost his hearing

“this only once” ... what a beautiful line to ponder—a movie title, perhaps, blanketing a love story

Enjoyed both of these--the bright masks and the snow. :)

Magic moments, snow has been part of my life for decades, with the exception of nine years in Florida. I saw a woman wearing a rhinestone embellished mask yesterday ~~ it was awesome! Happy Sunday.

The uniqueness of a snowflake...I am experiencing a winter vortex it is extremely cold and the snow came this week as well.
