Golden Grasses in the Snow

The north wind blows the snow in swirling luminous eddies.

Biting cold seeps into the woman’s fruitless body prostate on the ground.

Sparkling snow, deep in some places, barren in others, fans over her splayed-out chestnut hair.

Spiky golden stalks of grass rubbing in the wind,

Scratching, scratching in the snow.

What could end the promise of another breath or another day?

How could one so young and strong lose the beating of her heart, as

a swirling storm inside raged against her desolate soul –

never to feel the tender touch of one so small.

Clouds cast shadows against the darkness of the night.

Spiky golden stalks of grass rubbing in the wind,

Scratching, scratching in the snow.

The light of a setting sun washes across snowy dunes on the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge, with Mt. Susitna in the background.
