Deep and thick it came
Covering all the world we knew
Transforming it all

No more green to see
Now a world in black and white
Colour drained and gone

Light found a new home
Bouncing round, playing it's games
Racing over dark

The extreme weather
Meant our world was transformed
Into something strange

Not worse or better
Just different from our usual
And then it was gone

And then we missed it
We regretted our complaints
And we reminisced


Linked up at Julia's place for the 100 word challenge for grown ups with the prompt:
....the extreme weather meant…

Don't we all like a good old moan. You're right.
Appreciate what we have when we have it.
Nice piece.

...and then we lamented. :) We are never satisfied, are we? :) Love the silhouette of the tree.

I like how you describe light and darkness here. It's true how we to take for granted what we have until its gone
