fluffy arroyo

More “snow” in the arroyo this morning. This time it was falling from the sky. Still not real snow and not frost again either. The willows are sending off their fluff to repopulate the earth. It really does look a lot like lightly falling snowflakes, each fluffy seed forming it’s own little crystalline flake and getting blown into low drifts along the side of the trail. Someday it will snow in the arroyo for real. It will be beautiful. In the mean time, it’s enough to know that there are other arroyos out there in the world with other folks wandering through them and light snowflakes falling peacefully.
