Jari Thymian


fresh snow, two
old women make
laughing snow angels
  afternoon sun
through reading glasses
Tinkerbell on every page
my eyes drift lakeward
to islands of new ice
fringed by cormorants
  in every season
the magpie pecks
at my thoughts
caterpillar feast . . ..
does the thinning willow
recognize her shadow?
