Morning Snow
by Bruce McMillan

7:00 am, it's barely light,
the sun is shy, still rising up,
blocking it's dawn, one solid cloud,
gray sky heavy, so full of snow;
falling flakes, light dancing in air,
clinging white lines defining trees, 
As this gray cloud lets loose it's weight,
it floats higher up, leaving in sight.

Captures the quiet and stillness of a winter snow, the monochromatic hues are capture the subtle colors of winter landscapes
