Three peculiarities

of First Snow

in the Alps

that I find inspiring:

1 It stills stillness.

A very quiet landscape

appears

even quieter

when touched

by the first snow.

2 It brings forth texture.

The larger landscape

that usually

represents itself

to the visitor

mostly in terms

of color and shape

now reveals

unexpected

detail.

3 It marks transition.

Soon,

every thing in the landscape

will be covered completely,

will retreat and restore.
