I live several hours drive from where I grew up -- a very beautiful place in western New York State. I don't get there as often as I like. So, I follow some outstanding photographers on twitter from that area. It's a joy to see beautiful photos of familiar spaces.
One photographer is Jerome Davis (@jdavis2731). His photos make my fingers itch to write alongside his artistry...which occurred one early day in January -- the title for this poem.
Davis, Jerome. “Thursday Morning Glow! It Was Crazy to See It Snowing and the Sun Shinning so Bright. @john_kucko @WHEC_SPensgen @StormHour @News_8 @news10nbc @13WHAM Pic.twitter.com/2gMADR29DH.” Twitter, Twitter, 10 Jan. 2020, twitter.com/jdavis2731/status/1215765291042574337?s=20.
There’s no word
for sun meeting snow--
no multi-color rainbow
over pointing fingers
or squeals of delight
Just glow upon
falling upon this resting field
quilt on my bed
