Bosque Snow Storm

image

Geese and Cranes descend
with the snow,
taking a bit more care
than the flakes where they fall.

Backing wings to break,
looking for the landing…
and all about them
the snow falls careless
to cover the corn stubble.

The camera catches,
arrests the moment
and it’s movement,
flakes and Geese and Cranes,
frozen in their separate attitudes.

I could look forever.

Winter Meets the Sea

image

We live, they say,
in temperate latitudes,
where snowstorms cloud the beach
and barnicles on shells,
empty crabs, twists of sea-moss
and seaweed candelabras
play Eskimo tag where
the tide tossed sand,
covers the toes of the snow.

And they call that temperate!
