The Weight of Snow

winter rain
sinking in
to different depths

PN

cold seeps
into old bones

KLP


slate sky
the weight of snow
in the air

KLP

chanting all the unknowns
TV weather gurus

PN



sideways snow
the ocean
gives us a little taste

PN

flashbacks of summer
in a saltwater taffy

KLP



winter in the burbs
the storm’s quiet broken
by snow blowers

KLP

we thank the power company
for this candle-light dinner

PN



mid-winter thaw—
deep in the periwinkle
one purple star

KLP

a poet's passing
words feed a stranger's grief

PN



estranged brother
an eye on the weather
in his part of the world

PN

at the abandoned house
a crocus blooms through snow

KLP
