March Prompts #3: MARCH SNOW



This snowstorm’s not exactly late,

In fact, they happen all the time.

This sort of thing’s what we expect

For living in a Northern clime.


Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean

It’s something we appreciate–

Wouldn’t it be more comforting

If winter had a closing date?




Snow begins, flake by flake.

For a little while I can follow

the little shapes as they fall

from the snow-colored

sky to the snow-covered ground.


I would wish all my life

to be this way:

slow steps, distinct musics,

each moment acknowledged,

every face its own.
