The Snowball

 

The snowball—
Rubbed smooth by blood-warmed hands—
Misses its target by an inch
And hits instead a stone-lined wall
With a gentle piff
And an explosion of white.

    This is good, especially the last two lines.
    “Piff”. Tht’s exactly how it would sound.
    And i like the use of explosion here.
