  • Dust and snow

    By Layton Childress

    Soft, white froths of snow falls to the ground on this chilly December night. The colorful lights illuminate the city as I drive by. Every roof I can see bears pillars of ice that trickle down as if they’re lost in time itself, unmoving and unknowing.
    Stepping out of my car, I  can hear the soft crunch of the snow blanketing Earth. I open the door to be greeted by a rush of heat from the flaming logs of the fireplace in the center of the room.
