First (real) Snow

First (real) Snow

At Sweeties counter, I overhear that snow is in the forecast.
What kind?” I ask.
The white stuff,” is all they offer, mocking my resistance.

Vermont is
Pregnant
with Winter.

Like an expectant mother,
I can’t fathom that from this belly comes a baby,
a New Universe unto Itself

Covered  for 4 or 5 or 6 months
in a soft
White
Blanket
of

Snow.

Kelly Salasin, November 2007
