Winter Sketch

Source
Dark branches draw their lines
Against the sky,
In sternest black and white of
Barren trees.
A charcoal smudge of cedars,
Bending low,
Bear down beneath the blanket
Sketch of snow.
Color daubing only here and there-
A flitting cardinal,
Jays,
And bittersweet-
Relieve the monochrome
Of snowy branch.




I catch these moments here,
Then lose them all
As white swirls in
Upon a hiss of wind.
A sliding sound,
A sudden shift of scene,
The picture re-designed
By Artist hands.
