First snowfall 2021
Window panes of glass
bend evening's light
transforming an espresso landscape  
into snowflaked obsidian—
a phenocryst crystal, reflecting  
a solitary soloist perched  
on a shivering pin oak's limb
No bigger than my palm
its shrill organ penetrates
a Universe of soft silence
despite the absence  
of light or warmth  
'And I think to myself,
What a Wonderful World'
