winter carnival 2012

Winter Carnival
along every terrace
snow and weeds

the winter sparrows
have all gone silent --
how pale your eyes

empty stalks
gathered close to the wall
this errant heart

just a cold wind
tugging at my sleeves-
January thaw

Worth the wait.

I'm not surprised all the sparrows have gone silent. It's a beautiful but bone-chilling place to be.

"Worth the wait" indeed. These are all wonderful, Willie!

Love the jump between the two images in the "snow/weeds : eyes" verse. They start far apart, yet, with repeated reading, draw closer and closer. Filmic!
