Winter 09/10

Cold

hard cracked.

Always

Threat of ice

and

Darkness.

Snow.

More than Ever.

White softness

covers.

Lingers

then

gone.

Gone

not quite

so quickly

as

Before.

Fire bright

crackles

warmth draws

all

hither.

Anxious

days

to watch

as

car must

move down

steep

byway.

Alone

in

house.

Braced

from

always

cold.

Heat Pump

hums.

Snow melts.

Just to fall

again.

Temperature hovers just at

that place

to freeze

once more

black winding roads

covered with excess

waterfalls,

ponds,

streams,

even rivers.

More cold,

more snow,

than

prior.
