Snow – 8

28 January, 2014
At dawn, a pink line of sky bordered above by lettuce hem smudged grey cloud, as if a pink fire raged beyond, reflected in the brightening sky. Pink turns to peach and then fades to pale yellow light as the sun rises. Snow clouds now cover the sky, threatening with fatal, falling flakes.

23 January, 2014
Snowflakes wander down without intent. A flurry of white dandelion seed heads in a biting wind. Winter’s mastery inflicts itself in bitter chill and snow. He will not release his grip on us.
