On a Park Bench

Snow falls the velvet gown
my hand imprints its deep pile
as if a memory
footprints of a fieldmouse slide and circle
a figure skaters choreography
the sun rises from above the cloud
as if a growing flower
in winter shine crystals glisten
are they glass beads or pearls?

    Very fine pen picture drawn sitting on a park bench of the falling of the snow and the rise of the sun, Lesley
