winter color

i have been complaining
of the winter
and the dreary.
this morning
 just past sunrise
 my driveway
swathed in 
 the inside of a shell
or a cecropia
swimming in blushing air
until it changed
this afternoon
 these clouds
like tapestry
ushered in the
weather change
 there was a bit of ice 
on the drainage
and one calf.
i asked where is the other?
in the freezer, he replied.
