Visual Delicacy

Heavy wet snow

Silently deposited overnight

Clings stickily to tree limbs

Whitely adorns fence posts

Determinedly announcing its presence,

Asserts rightful January place.

Cast-iron overcast sky

Submits to sun’s persistence

Penetrating rays slice through clouds

Sever blue-grey slate layers

Cracked clean upon impact.

Orange sherbet slides between,

Melts in sweet dispersement

Hovers tantalizing on the horizon.

Stubborn blades of grass

Lance pock-marked snow.
