Snow in April


It came out of a dirty grey sky,

But was a surprise nonetheless.

I walked with my coat unbuttoned,

And let flakes fall on my jumper

Revelling in the feeling of the unexpected.

Fragments caught in my hair and melted,

Leaving icy tracks across my cheeks.

I looked up and caught a glimpse of infinity,

Before I was blinded by the falling flakes.

It didn’t last long,

It was snow in April
