Transient Snowfall
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
 
They saw it coming
like a great animated brush stroke
snow
 
settling calmly
in the manner of yesterday I told you
so
 
the meteorologists
had charted its course how it would
go
 
in twenty four hours
leaving pug marks like a leopard in the grass
no
 
more to return
rain its colourless cousin stepping in just hours
ago.
