Facing Snow Courageously



I face the snow headfirst

With eyes like diamonds

For winter, I will grieve


In my own way, hearing

The battle cry of many

New ghosts, I will whimper

As the wind howls

And I will do a rapid


Snow dance at low dusk

And the stove will remain red

And my heart will hear


The news broken like

An empty book ready

For the calligraphy of

Hibernation, retreat, reclusiveness

The clouds of disorder


Of this strange world

Will not trouble me anymore

I can appreciate the whirlwind


Of snow ragged among

The tops of trees, and that is

Enough, tea is optional

Nature is unforgettable

The ladies seek comforts


But the snow only requires

A landing place, to accumulate

The white magic of another time.
