It blends the landscape
in a blur of white and whining wind.
It covers the cracks and
crusts of craggy hillsides.
It pours itself onto the streets
in slick and slushy slurs.
It whitens the dark days and
dances a duet with the tick and tock
of the mantle clock.
It brings a rest into my soul
like a sigh of simple breath.
