Snow -


Big, fat, sloppy flakes started falling about 10 am.
In two hours the world is covered with quieting snow.

I am watching it all from above through the window behind my computer.
A fattening of the tree limbs and branches as the snow piles up.

The white gives away the plump dove sitting on a high branch.
A dark rounded shape perched still

She watches the world change around her.
To a world in black and white
Seeming not to notice she has lost her camouflage.

I remember another time I saw the world as an etching.
On the train from Frankfurt to Stuttgart
Jim, Karen, Robin and I huddled in the chilly compartment
Watching the foreign land outside
turned into a black and white line drawing
Unfurl as we sped past.

Small discoveries
Moments of magic
That hang on
as slender threads
connecting to the memory.

Isn't it lovely? I'm glad it didn't stop my sisters from coming to make fruitcake.
