Words on White
by Lynn Woollacott

The soft winter snow
submits to sighs of weaving wind
between the silver cloaks of wood,
silhouettes of seasoned boughs layered
by the sequence of the soothing song.

It sits on the signpost coating
the symbols with white signature.
Observer to the yield from the sky
she smiles at the sparkle
of the footpath swathed in white,
and stops her wordsmith wanderings
to stand in stillness for awhile
and watch the gentle drifting snow.
