Snow Angels

in the new snow

we laid down
on our backs, reaching

out; our legs
spreading, the arms

moving out, up
touching the hands

at the top; knowing
how I am with you

is only to the extent
that I know you;

rolling to our sides
falling forward

in an easy grace
to love against

my parka under
your goose-bumped

bottom: creating
patterns children won’t

question and adults
will never see.
