Winter Dream

By Cassi Clark, 1999

 

Like cherry blossoms shaken from a tree

white crystals float from a blooming sky,

one by one they descend on anticipating earth

rediscovering forgotten mountainous treasure.

 

White crystals float from a blooming sky

while the moon illuminates diamond peaks

rediscovering forgotten mountainous treasure

filling powder shaped meadows and bowls.

 

While the moon illuminates diamond peaks

piles of cherry blossom like flakes

fill powder shaped meadows and bowls.

Snowmen and women avert sleep to watch

 

piles of cherry blossom like flakes

cover cars and homes and windows through which

snowmen and women avert sleep to watch.

And clouds thicken as they dump their treasure

 

covering cars and homes and windows through which

snow-people imagine floating on the fluffy accumulation

and clouds thicken as they dump their treasure

over hibernating valleys and cliffs.

 

Snow-people imagine floating on the fluffy accumulation

as snowflakes fall endlessly

over hibernating valleys and cliffs.

Snow-people drift into excited slumber

 

as snowflakes fall endlessly

like cherry blossoms shaken from a tree

snow-people drift into excited slumber

and one by one white flakes descend on anticipating earth.
