prairie snow

prairie snow blows a fine veil
that drifts into corners and doorways
dusts crevasses of fence boards
hangs virgin mantles like billowed skirts
on bent spruce boughs

snow sculpts curves in a roadside
curls waves over driveways
transforms ice into diamonds
on deck railings and dog fur

snow softens sun in a thin white sky
a silver medallion on dry pale skin
it muffles sound, blurs edges
obscures reality with amorphous denial
