Winter Pantoum

 Branches crack under the weight of snow

cold wind pushes hard against bowing trunks

pine forest sways and moans

diamonds fall as limbs shiver

wind pushes against bowing trunks

a groan sounds deep in heartwood

diamonds fall as limbs shiver

heaped snow rests discarded

like nightclothes in early morning light

a groan sounds deep in heartwood

Winds shift snow weighing branches down

heaped snow rests discarded

like nightclothes in early morning light

silence aside from a tomcat’s howl

winds shift snow weighing branches down

abiding until light.

silence aside from a tomcat’s howl

in the stillness a moon sliver appears
