[Unexpected delight]

Unexpected delight –
the snow that came not quite
Chicago fog on cat feet,
just tip-toeing in the night –
to outline while we were tucked in
the fractal shapes of nature –
white chalk on an old-fashioned
blackboard – this is how the oak
grows; this is how the ash grows.

But it barely gave us time
to learn our lessons –
now it’s not even noon
and it is dribblng
down its own chin
like summer popsicles
