Souls celebrating, table set, the kitchen’s warmth, the house full of life and the littlest ones playing.
Chatting, food, laughter, toasts, happiness; relax, intimacy, joy.
Meanwhile outside, among the first shadows of the evening, snow has started to fall, again, softly,
wrapping and padding the entire landscape in its white quilt.
The mind scampers, mocking, between dream and reality,
among what was, what is, and what – maybe – will be, tomorrow.
Emotions follow one another, rapidly, dancing ably on the merry-go-round of memories…
