Deep snow

In all this blankness,
a squirrel finds the precise spot
it buried a nut.

Breaking trail with snowshoes,
I choose to believe
I’m half-floating, not half-sinking.

Clumps of snow sail off the trees,
making a random scatter
of oblong prints.

  1. Just enough here to give the snow some outline. The rest is blankness, as the first line suggests. It’s quite nice.
