Spring Snow


grass at the road edge,
a rivulet of water ice
spears a clod of mud,
kicked by a farmer's wheel.

Hard wind, dark clouds,
over brown fields.
I am a warrior, jumping fences and hedges.

Snowflakes swim past,
ghosts of winter.

A single flake impaled on a barley stalk,
Is motionless.

All about me, large flakes melting, collapsing.

I examine their bodies.

Crystal memories of blizzards past.
