January thaw – January 30

1.30.2017

there’s something about

a January thaw

that does a body

good.

 

we walk to the waterfall

where the flows pulsing

behind a yellowing

wall of ice

 

feed into the widening maw

of deep copper

below

 

and piles of fall-gathered

brush emerge

from beneath the

snow.

 

the air opens

our eyes our

hearts and our

hope.

 

winter will pass.
