The Snowy Lake
I stand on the rocky shore of the rippling lake with my best friends. Bright smiles and rosy cheeks can be found on all of our faces and a dim twinkle in our eyes shows the happiness that we find in each other. Scrolling through the pictures I took, I can see blurry spots throughout the photos. I look up at the sky and I see delicate little white crystals falling. One of the beautiful snowflakes lands on my nose, tickling my senses. Upon landing silently on the chilly rocky ground, the snow quickly turns into water. The once beautiful and unique crystals turn into liquid nothing. What was once one of nature’s most astounding creations quickly disappeared. None are the same, they each have their own patterns. It blows from above softly, hitting the bare branches of the trees that had recently lost their brightly coloured leaves. It only lasts a few moments, but in those moments time stopped. There was no stress, no worries and no judgements. Snow can do that to people, mesmerize them long enough for them to forget their thoughts... and the darkness that lays there. It’s a blanket of white that covers the darkness of the cold hard ground. It brings a sense of light. Just those few flakes brought a sense of peace to my mind that had been wanting to escape the thoughts of the harsh world. It only lasted a few special minutes, but in that time alone, I felt more relaxed than I had been for a long time. When the sky had rid itself of the flakes, the darkness came back, but my mind stayed white like the dazzling snow.
