…portraits of feathers…

THE COW BARN’S FROSTED WINDOW PANES

soft in the night he must have come

to paint the panes one by one

the portraits of feathers,rivers and valleys.

to touch and carve with such graceful skill

surely an artist perched on the sill.
“Jack Frost was here,” my father said.

“See what he has done.

taking his knife he captured some

cold scrapings from the masterwork.

his mark is harsh and deeply drawn

just an egg shaped window

unmasking blush of early morn.

Mary Kellogg 2006
