this day was longer
than the day before it

late filtered sun
on snow-laden trees

winter is textural
rime ice and powder

everything built
upon another

cold pastiche
this punched out step

in a snowfield
an irreversible mark

sharp punctuation
but not indelible

this night this storm
will erase it

nothing lasts
not even nothing

    Excellent work on this post! I really enjoyed your reflections in the new year. I agree that some days are longer than others as well! This was a very inspirational piece and the sort of poem I’ll remember for years to come. I look forward to your future posts!
