A Separation of Land & Sky
by Richard L. Provencher

Thin slices of
colour peer
a-c-r-o-s-s the horizon

as embers within
a camp-fire of clouds

towering over drifts of snow.

Rumbling now dark
and ominous, rolls forward
tumbling in a blanket of foam.

Our pace meanders across the
lake, silhouettes etched on
homewards trail---

snowshoes shuffle to shore
as clouds whirl in anticipation.

Slender boughs shiver amid tugs
of sweeping wind; an early evening
brings snowflakes
as tender kisses.

2011 Richard L. Provencher
