Like powdered sugar
sprinkled on spice cakes

brown and russet leaves
dusted in snowflakes.

Smell and sight?I can taste those cookies, and maybe even crunch some leaves as the snow falls. Very well done, Lauren

An economy of words, I can see and smell the spice cakes, the word dusted is perfect here. Thanks Lauren

On North Georgia's mountaintops, it's like dusted Bundt cakes.

A good description for the woods at our place in this weird Minnesota winter with very little snow except in permanently shadowed places.
