Snow falling after a 60 degree day.
Snow on chile ristras,
White wet flakes against dried maroon,
The water droplets forming soon.
At the adobe house, the snow
Continues in its early spring show.
In a backyard display of nature
Are the aspen trees, free of leaves.
White wet flakes against light gray.
I never knew their name,
But all the same,
They are beautiful,
In a bright blue day or skies of gray,
Near-white bark and trunk so stark.
A snowy day in Santa Fe,
And white wet flakes
Falling on the aspen trees.
