After Rain

Children playing in snow 1

After Rain

after rain
a freeze of snow
suspended time
flexi flyers
down…down
head first
feet first
no hands
speed devils
slicing metal edges
groomed tracks
zigzag the trees
howling
boy and girl
twelve years
swerving
banking
crashing
glittering snow plumes
race up the hill
snow fights
warriors hissing
white air
ice crystal balls
arched
smashed
jammed into coat collars
slipping down
slender necks
thin shoulder blades
sniffling noses
chapped cold lips
hasty kiss
spontaneous
stillness
shadows lengthen
time awareness
melting snow
return of rain
