Hilly Folds

February 5, 2012 § Leave a comment

With fierce and desperate concentration,

She begged the snow-heavy clouds

To fly away, while simultaneously willing

All two- and four-legged beasts to choose a route

That would not bisect the sandy road she doggedly followed.

She traversed the hilly folds of the cold grey landscape

Where leafless branches of apple trees still held their fruit

Glowing against the dry fields like small red and yellow fires.
