Snowfall in Atlanta


There is witchery in the night,

Monstrous Ghost Trees loom,

Every minor twig blasted thick crystal,

Bushes cold-laden exploded willows

Bending in tired submission

To a transformed ground.

The dark of a winter sky,

A distant rose-pale glow

As if some drunken Aurora Borealis

Has cast her color, dipped low and

Wheeled from her northern skies

To settle for a night below.

Commonalities made fantastic.

A gift  from a bare frost-parched season-

Incomprehensible mystery before the eye.
