Winter Poem for Small Creatures


WINTER POEM FOR SMALL CREATURES

11/5/2017

Snowing again

white clouds cancel fall

Maple leaves blanket streams

transpired in hopeful event of salmon

Why the squirrel crosses the road

should we need another in the middle of the night

In the morning we open the door

Look: all those tracks in the snow…
