Slim, flower-queue bodies
Jostled by late-fall flakes of
Light mid-day snow
Hazel catkins shiver,
Dance, nudge one another,
Seeming to enjoy the attention:
Slender-spire plumes of
Immediately beyond the small paned window
The fall is innocent, robbed of threat –
Simple, gentle, deceitful horizontal descent.
Further away, between the
Game-cover wood and the
Hedge cuttings brash pile
It more capricious,
Openly slanted and vicious.
While I’m asleep
Some things will happen,
Some things won’t.
