First winter

Frozen greens – on rolling hills.

I know the owner as he prepares

Christmas carols to sing.

Heisse Marroni stands are up,

darkest month filled up with light and love.

I stand here waiting and watching

train-tracks fill up with snow.

A thought occurred as

footprints of many appeared this morn.

I too saw your tracks as you wheeled

our little boy to daycare.

The thought of his little hands

reaching out to feel

first snowfall of his life.

Makes me wonder in awe – is this real?

Made my heart warm up with love

remembering the past and realising –

this too is a first for us,

parenthood, for eternity.
