Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
Frozen Image - version 2 by Raymond A. Foss
A walk in the woods
Down the path
Away from the road,
Bustle of the highway
Cold of winter
Catch of air
Crunch of snow
Snap of branch

A burst of downy wings
Festooned the ground
A vole track
Ended abruptly

Catches of light and shadow
The beat of predator feathers
Thrust into the crust

Arc of
Captured in the coating –
Hands scooping
A pile of leaves
For bagging

Frozen image
Fleeting, under melting
Life and death
Of the road
Down the path

June 24, 2004 15:26, about a walk on the http://hikenh.netfirms.com/TDNinete.htm> Nineteen Mile Brook Trail, http://www.hike-nh.com/trips/carter/index.shtml> Alternate site, off Router 16 just up from the Mt. Washington Auto Road, one January morning 5 years ago.
Edited June 24, 2004 19:13, adding the 4th stanza.
