About snow

With thanks to students in my Field Studies in “Nature” Writing class:

Size seven shoe, entering a chapel: high-heeled. Ambitious choices.

Unseen hands: inking streams and painting danger.

Absence: bodies cut holes in the wind. Numb edges.

Red buckets, flapping tarps. Contrast, sound and light bend.

Spiders falling on wind-blown silk. Tripping on flakes. Implicit: dread.

Sky layers, inverted on the ground.
