the big game

sun crawls toward a snow-capped ridge.

someone’s built snowpeople
on top of the frozen pond.

the moon hides behind trees
doing their morning stretches.

a fire pit, half-buried, watches the sky change
from blue-black to peach to grey.

engines from the highway
mix with the yawn from the forest,
mix with the whisper from the stream underfoot.
