Study in White

Frost feathers

criss cross patterns/ weave thru blueness/ of morning sky/ crosshatch of contrails

frost on windows/ clouds in the blue autumn sky/ cream in my morning tea

melting / heavy white frost / drips from bleak branches/ despairing of the sun

all that can be seen / fog of her breath /her bright eyes /whitetail in moonlight

face, just turned/ three quarter profile / smiling to the stars/ gibbous moon
