snow

nature accomplishes
with ease
with beauty
what i spend
too many frenetic clock-spins
monday to friday
mourning
my powerlessness
to pull off

she postures
our earth-mama
over days
over weeks
clouds surly
sun coquettishly rare
chill needling in
between gusts

men in gray
ladies in lipstick
swear they know
name the jet streams
tenderly sweep manicured hands
over maps
we all know aren’t there
labeling uncontrollable forces
in jovial fonts
trivial diagrams

then it comes
entirely unswayed
by opinion
by science
by aesthetic
softly
fiercely
stealthily
ruthlessly

silence
dropped
on us
all
