More Snow

Today the sky hovered

low over the tips of trees

And pressed upon our skulls

as if to make sure

we knew it was there

And today the sky

wallowing in white/gray

opposed contrasting darks

of shadowed earth tones

where we live and then

Today the sky

freed bits of itself

once knitted into grief

Shedding lost flakes

that drifted silently

to their fate covering

the darkened ground

to someday return

to tomorrow’s sky.

  1. Well chosen imagery. I particularly like ‘And pressed upon our skulls as if to make sure we knew it was there’. That’s exactly what heavy, low clouds feel like to me – oppressive, load bearing.
