A Poem for Winter

A peek through the window at winter – reflection, remembering and taking comfort in sadness.

Quiet as snow
falling like a catastrophe
snow globe strobe disco
dances in the light like moths
vulnerable as dropped grapes
at the tread of a heavy boot
in the limping yellow firelight
she retraces other winters
old grief – her unseen talisman
unfolding like a kept receipt
long faded to white
