snow angels – poem

February 3, 2013

a snow angel is made in an untouched bed of snow by lying on your back and then waving your arms and legs. Then your partner lifts you out
leaving the perfect image of a winged angel in the snow.

frosted breaths chasing snowflakes
catch one on the tongue, not nose
red flushed cheeks, gloved clasping hands
fresh fallen snow creaks and groans
beneath each exploring footstep

hazel eyed snow angel
waves her arms and legs
carving rounded silhouettes
then dancing inside to stomp and shake
polar bears who shed their fur

hot chocolate waits
as marshmallows relax
sidelong glances
warm intentions of
making angels of our own

    And the polar bear dance for afters. Plus the hot chocolate.
