Poem: "Snipping Snowflakes"

This poem came out of the November 19, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] kelkyag. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles. This poem belongs to the Monster House series.

"Snipping Snowflakes"

When the weather station
announces fair skies
for Christmas Eve,

my daughter goes
to get her silver scissors.

She sits in the living room
snipping snowflakes from
pieces of pretty paper, and
soon the flurries start outside.

We always have a white Christmas.
