.:snow on tree trunks:.

light laces, sharply
curving– splits,
forks
through dark trees lancing
upward, lightning-like
into inky blackness,
numerical arms branching,
breaking earth
Open and
arcing out into

Air.

soft vibrations in limb
and forest floor raise the stately
head of a stag: sudden

Awareness.
