Snowing in Alexandria, Va; Pissarro reverie

Dear friends and readers,

As I type this it's snowing in Alexandria, Va.  Big thick heavy flake coming down slowly -- the flakes appear spaced apart.  It's quickly sticking too.  "Weatherunderground" on the Net says we will not get much of this; promises it will stop within an hour. I hope so, but right now it looks very pretty.  ... drizzling now, thinning ...



Pissaro, Pont Neuf in Snow

This thought may come as one watches the snow at first:

Snowbound

is  that other world
in which no schedules sit
and no ambitions flare
to interrupt the bluest sky
and whitest field
and coldest air.

What I like about Pissarro's picture is the people as carrying on -- just more quietly ...

E.M.
