as the snow drifts down

March 28, 2013
as the snow drifts down
skeletal november trees
thrust bare limbs to grey sky
brittle branches snapping at the wind

inside warm houses
grownups perch
frustrated by the threat of winter

geese honk at cloudy skies
small V’s protesting
the early storm

pets huddle indoors
afraid of the white flakes
coating the summer green lawns

and kids frolic outdoors
boot-clad feet skipping around
claiming this foreign world for themselves

the small
bright eyed
children of winter
