Grass in Snow

1.
Where does a blade of grass find the ferocity
to stand through the covering of heavy snow?

2.
A blade of grass
stands through the covering of
newly fallen snow.

3.
Enough snow 
has fallen
to cover
each blade
of grass
still present
under the
cladding
crystal.

4.
I love the tracks I make with my feet
when walking across frosted blades of grass.

5.
Even 
better, 
the expanding 
line of exposed grass
in warm snow that ends 
at the foot of a child's creation.
