Lake Snow



Lake Snow
Little Traverse Bay, 2008
by Destiny Dorozan

January shakes out
her hair
tiny flakes vibrate
to the ground
The cold vast bay
moves with slush
A line of ice snakes
from the lighthouse
end of the pier

All grey, grey-blue  
the bay churns and froths
the sky boils and folds
scattering crumbs
that crumble
to the pavement
All grey, grey-white  
insignificant circle
in the moil of cloud
a meek stand-in for sun

Inside windows drip
with fever
Snowflakes collide into glass
desperate for shelter
Snow is lake’s daughter
afterbirth piles up
along the roadside
Days begin and end
without passage of time
The snow blows, falls

All grey, grey-blue
the thump of boots
at the door
All grey, grey-white 
a car’s eyes in snow-fog

Waves stiffen at the shore
crackle          creak

The long drips
winter’s palm lines
all run together
The lake the bay
froths     churns      creaks
The mother and the daughter
Lake and snow
