Grasp # The Daily Post

I look out of the window

And watch the snow fall down

As outstretched arms of trees

Reach out to grasp the flakes

Before they touch the ground

And turn into a muddy puddle.

Responding to #TheDailyPost – Grasp


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    We are so tired of the white stuff here in upstate New York. And we didn’t even get blasted by those nor’easters the way people further east did.

  3. What core strength drives these bare trees to withstand the sub zero temperatures and stay put like a brave soldier, I wonder! Wish I could learn a thing or two from them.

    I want to see snow too. I have never seen it in real life. Must be very cold out there. Love the imagery of outstretched arms of trees.

      I thought there is snow in your part of the world ( New Zealand is close by isn’t it ? ) perhaps that should be your next holiday destination. Away from the sunny beaches. Knowing you, you’d make it a cross country trek ! And it is really very cold even when the sun is shining as it is today

    Love the idea of the tree’s outstretched arms wanting to catch the pretty snowflakes 🙂

  6. Such a good shot and warm words. The imagination hiding in this poem was really awesome.
