SNOW...GRAY...COLD...

Poem and photographs by Jim Baldwin


Snow...

The mantle of winter cloaking all in its powdery robe.

Obscuring

the shapes of the countryside.

Muting the sounds

of Nature and her creatures.

Snow.

Gray...

The color of winter

overpowering all with its monotony.

Symbolic

of the dormancy that winter brings.

Giving new perspective

to all that it surrounds.

Gray.

Cold...

The texture of winter abrasive against the skin.

The wind is its courier

delivering it at the doorstep. Chilling the bones of the impoverished

while the wealthy relish the warmth.

Cold.

[27]
