9/2017: Waiting for Snowfall

Hands in my jacket,
standing in the cold outdoors
look up to the skies
to ask the snow to bless us
but it refuses to fall.

AN:  There is supposed to be a snow storm in Toronto today, and I am watching nervously from my window, imagining the terror of driving tomorrow.

At the same time….

I have gotten into Korean dramas, and there is this theme in these shows about confessing your love when it snows, or that your love will be successful if you confess it during the first snowfall. I don’t know if these are real mythologies that exist in Korea, but I do like the romance (and innocence) of it.

I like the fact that I had two very different ideas of snow fall in my head today.
