“as if each snowflake” – Haiku on a city snow

as if each snowflake
caught a sound and soothed it down;
the city swaddled

I imagine the folk on the East coast are well tired of the thick swaddling their cities have received and are ready for the raucous cries of Spring. Having only recently received our first significant snow, though, I wanted to write something about how snow stills and pacifies a city, at least temporarily so.
