It's Snowing

I woke up early this morning and when I glanced through the window I noticed snow falling. I put on my shoes, jacket and hat and headed out the door. I walked around for about thirty minutes.

Here's a wonderful poem by Scott Hightower from his brand spanking new book Part of the Bargain.

I have a new crush. His name is PJ Clark. Anyone know him?

Snow

Soothes and burdens,
endangers, hardens.

Erases, revises.
Extemporizes.

Vistas of lunar solitude.
Builds, embellishes a mood

My middle name is PJ Clark. Which mysteriously begins with a D.

Ah, that first midwestern snowfall!

Wonderful, too, the first time it hits New York and everything looks, briefly, new again.
