By Mark Halperin
my postponed life
came to a crystallized moment
snowshoed on three feet
of freshly fallen snow
“how shall I live?”
in the void of silence in these woods
overwhelmed in the present,
I heard the
loving hugging enveloping
sound of snow
faithfully effortlessly falling
from the aged all-knowing pine trees.
