Snow

rules relaxed
neighbours greet and smile
brighter than eye whites
it tells us to slow

we walk in the middle of the road
giddy with transgression
the air is glistened
and feels changed forever.
melts as it falls
like the mayfly
it lives just one bright day.

we cannot help but destroy
the diamond silk of the paths
never touched by another human
we plant our footprint flags
claim it as our own.

looking at the drenched-clean city
we feel the stirring of the great water within.
that from where we come
and that which sustains.
the original sea-womb of all life.
we stand
in a drop of our own essence.
the howling lake inside
silenced in snow.
