NDJ:8 “Winter Light” by Andrea Northwood

Winter Light

Winter sunlight
on birch trees
dances off
fresh snow;
all’s aright again,
a bright dazzling
white sparkles
everywhere.

When black edges
of a raven
alight
and hop
from branch
to branch

the contrast creates
a cleaner
sharper
beauty
than I
have ever
seen.
