A Winter Vacation Remembered
She calls me out; my sister, to "see something." Not knowing what, i comply. The door is slightly opened enough for a cold draft to swing its way in.
The scene before me is a snow globe. No, not a snow globe; but all the little snow globes in the world, gathered together to perform a whirling dance.
Wow! What a sight. Awesome is the correct and very apt word for this first time spectacle to a warm blooded woman, from a hot sunny Caribbean island.
The only whiriligig i know is leaves dancing in a burst of enthusiastic breezes. Leaves of all shapes colours both green yellow and brown. And its not an autumn scene. Its an ordinary Caribbean Dry season happening.
So there i am with Ohhs eluding my throat escaping my lips. My eyes opened wide in wonder.
first time seeing snow -
a handful of flakes caught
a surreal feeling
