Snow Angel – #flashfiction

snow angels“I’m going outside to make a snow angel.” Helga pulls on her boots and coils a scarf around her neck.

“No! You’ll ruin it. Don’t. Everything is so pretty and white.” Outside, the snow blanket glistens with pinpricks of moonlight. Untainted by footprints, the winter garden is immaculate.

“It’s going to melt, so what difference does it make?”

I press my nose against the cold window. “You always want to spoil things.” Bossy sister.

“I want to have fun, that’s not spoiling things.” Helga’s hat flops over her ears.

I fetch my boots. Helga’s exuberance won. It generally does.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.



  2. Hello – thank you for this article – I am also promoting snow Angels but in a slightly different way. I have just added to my own snow angel blog on “Does Climate Change Affect Snow Fall”

    Volunteer snow angels are needed more than ever. Sorry if I took this in a slightly different direction but your forum is a great help to educate and have people become involved. Thanks.
