Excavating the vehicle

The stillness of new snow– majesty that never fades.

I brushed it away from my car, preparing for tomorrow morning’s commute.  Often this task is done in a hurry.

But tonight it was a pleasure, a chance to stretch my arms and pay attention to detail, to clear a path in advance.

No bite in the air, only a wonderful quiet. Underneath, I scooped the packed snow away.

The repetition comforting, I did not rush.
