Crack

A woman's
high bootheels

crack
against concrete

dried leaves
in wind

crack on the back
of a park bench

small hard
snow pellets
in the first sudden squall
crack
against a window
that cascades cold
into a dim room

an echoing season

cracks

shards

collapses.

I love this - whenever I miss winter I just come here....

There is a crack in everything.

Thanks for dropping by, all. Been awhile since I did a longer(ish), written piece....

'Dreamer: Yes; all too sharp. Hi! have you gotten any where you are yet?

Angelfish: Am I really so frosty?

Aggie: What kinda crack is that?

I've only known winter through stories and poetry and pictures. Your poem brings it to me, in this quiet room. At five in the morning, way before dawn. It's a refreshing plus, especially on a Monday. Thank you. ^_^
