poetry and prose about place

moment of beautiful – shadow on the snow

with 2 comments

shadow on the snow



under the snow


the shadow is a blue portal, a hidden way

to crocus places, sheltered where no drifting

snow or bitter wind comes howling


frost-brittle maples creak

and chickadees crack seeds

of sunflower stashed

in tunnels shaped

by squirrels

    • Hi Barbara. The shadow was a bit elusive … The sun kept going behind the trees! Jane
