dreams of snow

we lived sky high
10,000 feet
mountain peak
boulder valley

canvas tipi
canvas dome
nothing more than one inch
separating you from the winter outside

frozen precipitation pitter pattered
crying like tears streaming down the windows
the woodstove crackled
the dogs snored

the snow would come quietly
bringing a hush all around
the winter woods in snow
total silence
the absolute quiet
i miss

it’s snowing in dallas today
and we’re making paper snowflakes in austin.
