Sun Dazzle

Romp! Run! Go!
Laughing woman and smiling dog,
up to their knees, racing!
Crunching through the snow’s skin,
wind blown and captured in waves;
the weatherman’s story from

Muskrat, perching on pond’s edge,
dark form instantly sliding
into water at the burst
of their movement.
Energy is joy exploding!

Blue sky, stretched canvas
on a white sea of ice.
Yellow-gold grasses etching a circle
around the pond.
The dog following, explores
hiding places.

Sparkle. Dazzle.
Squinting and laughing,
the tears roll down
her cheeks,
light echoed on everything.
She cries
for the beauty of it all.
