Snow at last
Pomi’s prayers were answered and the next morning a thick blanket of snow covered the world outside.
I tried to wake my little crochet doll: “Pomi!”
” What? I am tired. I want to sleep.”
“Are you sure?”
Pomi peeked from under the blanket out of the window where the day was slowly rising over a winter wonderland. He did not say a word for a while and then:
My crochet doll jumped up, rushed to the window and stood there for a long time staring outside mesmerized by the beauty of the snowy morning. Finally he turned around and left the room.
” I have to go outside!”he said clambering up the stairs as fast as he could.
” Do you need help?” I offered.
” No, I am fine. Just bring me my things please. ”
I brought him his warm clothes. He slipped into his jacket, put on shoes, hat, and scarf and ran outside.
It had stopped snowing for a while. As soon as he was on the balcony Pomi slowed down. He carefully went to the banister and leaned against it. The way he was standing there he seemed a bit unsure of himself.
” Everything ok?” I inquired.
” Sure. ” Pomi answered casually looking down into the garden.
He turned around to me then again towards the garden and before I realized what he was about to do he was sitting in the flower pot.
” Are you out of your mind?” I screamed at my crochet darling. “That is dangerous. You cannot jump off the balcony like that.”
” Well it is obvious that you are wrong, again I might say. I can and I did jump off the balcony and landed in the flower pot. It was a perfectly safe jump. Maybe you cannot do that because you are always afraid. But I can and I will.” Pomi jumped into the snow and slowly walked towards the end of the garden.
“This is a lot of snow.” He called out.
” Well I guess that depends on how you look at it.”
” Are you making fun of me? I may not be the tallest but the snow is high and it is not easy to walk in it.”
Pomi walked back towards me.
” Look. Snow angel.”
He threw himself on the ground and moved his arms and legs. He appeared to be really happy but after a while he said:
” I am getting cold. My clothes are not waterproof. Can we go inside ?”
