squishy under feet where snow and shadow once lay a stone-heart softens
on clear winter day one can see a long, long way almost into spring
where intellect fails and imagination ends wonder of wonders
while i looked away misty rain turns into snow where did the leaves go?
through the viewfinder the neighbor's dog comes and goes the snow keeps falling
making my way home on icy streets full of wrecks the sun sets on us
naked without leaves the trees in winter reveal their true character
