Snow falls
Its quietness
Unmatched
By its affect

Silence
There is silence
The night arrives soon
On tender overcast winter

Flights of birds
Sparrow chicks learn 
To trust
Before they know

Cold is comfort now
When before
It was the dawn
Of fear

Distance 
Cold distance
Makes Everything 
Possible & Again 
But frayed

We play
