new mexico snow
After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand
And chaining a soul.
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesnt' mean security.
And you begin to learn
That kisses aren't compromises
And presents aren't promises.
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of a woman or a man
Not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your loads on today
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in midflight.
After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if
you ask too much.
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone to buy you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure
That you really are strong.
And you really do have worth.
And you learn. And you learn.
With every failure you learn.
as you can tell, we don't have much snow here. not near where I'm livin' anyways. i don't pay attention to the weather report for other areas, but as far as I could see this day, even to Santa Fe, there just wasn't much snow to be found. it's nice for the winter but it makes for very dry summers and Fire danger at extreme Highs. hopefully we'll get more moisture somehow b4 the summer arrives. maybe sum rain in the spring time. although the desert doesn't need much rain, we still need it to keep the place from burning up.....
