the first snowfall

snowfall-3

I will find sanctuary
in December’s first snowfall
and it’s ivory spread

paralyzed
while the frosty feathers
smother your every footprint
and rid the earth of their pervasive scent

winter’s gracious  flurry
will suffocate each aching autumn memory
In sweeping blankets of bleach
