The brilliance of the day

Bit of this
A shimmer of possibilities, work cancelled due to snow.

The village is out and about, families, parents as euphoric as their offspring. More sedately couples arm in arm, even youth pokes it's nose out and sniffs the air.

A snowman is born on the green, for a fleeting moment much joy evolves around his space, more snowmen, snowball fights, passers by join the fun. I watch from my upstair open window inhaling the laughter. Eventually it dissolves, hat and scarf retrieved. The last dad trudges away without a backward glance. They stand with cheerful faces smiling at the cars as darkness creeps around them.
