By Elizabeth Eilers Sullivan
fresh as fallen snow
Layered atop—previous year’s
waters seeped into the ground beneath
The sky above
Expansive and deepened
Horizon to center to vanishing point
Land of living skies
And ground of deepened snow
Step lightly, gentle strength, rising up
No fallen snowflake ever the same.
The poem before the page.
