Bringing in the Snow

revisiting the palette

black,white and nothing

to paint in

moods, madness

pure

plain

hopeful

First Snowflake

defining magic

tentacle by tentacle

frost falls like stars

on the ground

weightless

soundless

like broken dreams

First Snowman

sturdy and sure

adding dimension

to the flat white expanse

the red scarf

fluttering

yet tight in a knot

contradictory but real

First SnowPlough

shaving down the streets

noisy,yellow&mean

necessary to bring back reality

there is always the black

under the white

a reminder that

redemption

is just

a layer away

First Snowstorm

Leaving you trapped

in the cocoon

of your home

and mind

there is magic outside

the window

and the red coals burn ember

in the hearth inside

destruction though

is just an angry

doorway away

First Snowmelt

it left behind

patches

the brown-green grass

waiting ,eager

wanting

the damp

wet cover

on every inch

frolicking

snow flakes

start to spray

a frothy embrace

the trees above weep

perseverance always pays
