Winter Browse


Winter Browse

In twin-tracks the tender 

bark’s peeled away, stripped 

bottom-to-top, south-to-north

exposing a weathered skin

beneath the black willow, marked

sentinel

body

expressed as moose, browsing

while the crone snow whorls 

through the inky forest

her rough, white fingers

bending the boughs with

teeth

of unwrapped sunlight

and the willow bark calf

who turns within
