Here is the “Snowfall New Year Poem”!

Snowfall New Year Poem

Particulate as ash, new year’s first snow falls,
upon peaked roofs, car hoods, undulant hills,
in imitation of motion that moves the way,
static cascades down screens when the cable
zaps out, persistent & granular with a flicker
of legibility that dissipates before it can be
interpolated into any succession of imagery.
One hour stretches sixty minutes into a field
of white flurry: hexagonal lattices of water
molecules that accumulate in drifts too soon
strewn with sand, hewn into browning
mounds by plow blade, left to turn to slush.
-by Ravi Shankar
