Second Winter

I didn't think I'd get the chance to post this poem, but mother nature is grateful enough to accommodate me.  Thanks, I think.

Second Winter
Amazing how the bright snow falls earthward
Flat, crystal propellers spinning like a DaVinci creation 
Helicopters made of feathers
Down in the lone batch of dead grass
A snow flicker tromps
War paint red on her cheek
Black Eye of Ra on her breast
Winking with every bob of her head
Her careful nest past coyote tracks
A messy arrangement
Mud is scarce.
April’s chiffon ballerina dance
Applauds with encores for second winter

P.S. I got my profile page up at Alberta Foundation for the Arts
