April Snow

Sky. An intense blue, cloud free, when I wake him. I announce there’s a carpet of snow. He scrambles from the bed, parts the curtains and peers out. Later walking, feet sinking through white down, our tracks joining those of fox and pheasant. We circle the rim of the wood, enjoy the yellow of a primrose cluster and the emerging spikes of bluebells.

frail sunlight –
the musk scent
of a frost-tipped rose
