late season snow

February 23, 2016 § 1 Comment

late season snow 
a fistful of salt

should take care of the front steps

a shovel, back and shoulders

has before it the driveway 

the sun

can handle 

the roof on its own
bulbs under it all sleep the sleep

I envy

slumbering in beautiful stasis 

waking only when

spring whispers the signal
