No snow here

January 8, 2022 § Leave a comment

No snow to report here yet

though the sky is willing

and our hearts wait for it

in deep winter.

For a while a white softness

would rub out the dirt of the streets,

the remains of this year’s

half-hearted celebrations.

And then, soon after,

we’d be thirsty for colour again,

our mind would shovel away

the heavy burden

from green bushes and red cars,

we’d long for the blue sea,

the moonlight in a warm night

when the cicadas cannot sleep.

But to make it all worth it,

first the snow must come.
