Early Spring

Window watching

Whisper white snow

Blowing —

In whirls and twirls

Onto a slick, wet road,

Flowing —

Mush, waiting,

Dripping drops of slush

Down a drain pipe grating.

 

Window watching

Whisper white snow

Flying —

Through the tangled,

Blossoming branches of trees.

Overlying —

The damp bark, 

Shadow sleeves.

 

Window watching

Whisper white snow

Caressing —

The growing tips

Of greening grass.

Dressing —

The blessing

Pearly white

For another numbing, 

Nasty night.
