First Snow

In Life, Milwaukee on November 11, 2013 at 12:57 pm


And it is the first snow of the year and feels like Josh Ritter’s song, Snow is Gone. A promise now falling from the sky sings: Light mean more! Warmth mean more! Companionship, and Color, the glow from tavern doors! Homes when a key turns, the exodus of birds, words ladled like soup at a hearty table, our seeking now to be not ephemeral but full.


Remaining leaves on trees jitterbug to gusts and gales, extending to my soul a well-practiced hand. The glass has returned half-full, and I am going to need it after this first dance, this glass half full of snow.
