19. Whisper Poem

(This poem is to be said in a whisper)

Fiercely into the wind,
The sky cold and clear.
Stars glitter, the earth hard.
Grasses frozen dry.
Powerful legs pause.
Nostrils flare,
Cold dry wind,
Calm eyes.
The ice sings.

    This poem is perfect for right now after 6 inches of more snow as the late afternoon sun appears briefly and shines through tiny pieces of falling ice, making it look like slivers of diamonds coming down.
