TRACKS IN JANUARY SNOW

No Gravatar

photostanding in this new year’s yard tonight
snow to here no jacket or hat or gloves
kids inside with their childhood laughter
it’s zero degrees & I’m happy
that the cold makes my chest ache
freezes my beard with every exhale
while the moon in its circuital intent
evolves & grows as it slinks westward
on the horizon a low-slung crescent flame
just above the treeline amidst starry applause
telling me heads up there’s plenty more
to come in this life son 
I am alive
in this moment in every moment
I remind myself that like a second chance
any resolution I make will only be
good when I do something with it

I turn to head back inside
pressing new steps into the snow
different than the ones that brought me here
