Advent Snow

The air cools 
the shutter closes 
resignation signals 
the time to wait 
and pay attention 
as peace settles itself 
in whiteness on the ledge 
joy clings to the mittens 
of the children 
hope shimmers in the gutter and 
love swirls in the streetlight.
The forecast
calls for more flurries.
