by the light of the silvery moon

December 24, 2007

Up early a day early – it’s not Christmas yet. It’s still dark, but the near-full moon gives plenty of light as I clear snow off the drive, off the deck. New snow and moonlight smooth over all the lumps and imperfections into flowing, voluptuous shapes. The wind last night certainly wasn’t gentle, but now the snow relaxes, graceful in repose.
