Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

Winters dreaming eyes are
Like driftwood floating
On rivers in underground
Caves, he dreams about snow globe balanced on a vanishing wand and wakes to
The residue of autumn
Floods. Wolves view snow
Lit boughs. Winter watches
Mountain dance as snow leopard sleeps. The cat's
Frame is gaunt, her eyes reflected on water are like
Postcards that are only read by ghosts.

What got the poem together for me are the words "eyes" and its associated action words "view", "watches" and "read". It is still fantastical as a theme, in a make-believe world of winter. Winter is echoed several times in the word "snow".
