Seasonaly Appropriate

circa 2004

layer of innocence

an invisible force vibrates the
final leaf on a tree
it pushes and pulls at the
branches playing a game of
hide-and-seek with
the squirrels



icicles blowing
bare branches
few leaves hang on
defying the wild winter wind
the clouds allow
the sun a brief
appearance
before they
again
release a flurry
of snowflakes
racing from the sky
only to land
and disappear
on the pavement



snowflakes falling from the sky above
individually, together drifting in a
slow hurry to
cover the dirty brown
existing snow with a new
layer of innocence
