Winter Came Today

Winter came today
geese flew in formation
a salutation to the storm
brewing in the southwest

A white out, blizzard
not because of the light snow
but winds gusted to pick it from the ground
covered birch, oak, pine branches, caused drifts

Windswept with white paint
the landscape a silent vision
went undisturbed in twilight hours
a testimonial to the truth of the north

We came over the horizon and wept.
