Three Winter Sketches in Honor of the Vernal Equinox
by Gary Hardaway
The thick, gray sky
on streets that, yesterday,
were warmed by bright sun
and an ambient sixty-five degrees.
an almost perfectly symmetrical
Cheshire grin of a moon tonight
above the iced roof of the house
across the street and my breath
a cloud veiling that smiling moon
Where the sun's shadows
fell, yesterday's ice awaits
today's impatient shoes.
