In the bathroom mirror, I saw
the snow begin. When I turned,
the birds were hovering near the
feeder and the world started to
soften. I quickly understood why
the legendary printmakers tried to
capture snow. There’s something
about the sudden covering of the
earth that makes truth obvious.
When I can see through all the
mirrors, it starts to snow in
A Question to Walk With: Describe your struggle with the mirrors that follow you and the snow in your mind that softly waits to welcome you into its silence.
