GRANDPA

said there would be days
like this. Soft snow – fluffy crystals
overcoming each press
of snowshoe.
He gave me this set – Algonquin
style he said. The type where
each foot raises up
slides over the other
and smoothly lays down onto
winter’s bearded breath.

Author Notes:
“Grandpa’s are precious – full of wisdom and eager to share helpful knowledge. I spent many trips in the winter using my snowshoes – tracking rabbits and noticing the beauty of woods that surrounded me.”
