Morning After 2-day Snow

The sky is the top of a latte
If the coffee was blue
A row of trees are toes
Sticking through a granny square blanket
of snow
Ducks with a purpose cut lines in the water
Trails give away their former position
Now five in formation on the hunt switch
Direction like wide receivers going long
New rays reveal the sand dune etching on the drifts
The whipped cream peaks can barely hang
Onto themselves before tumbling
Into the water hazard
My backyard is a perfect peak
For now
Soon children or animals will
Create a new landscape but now
All is smooth and
My water’s boiling.
