snowstorm -
two black buttons missing
from grandma's coat

late winter snowstorm
   the ridge top glows white in the soundless night

lingering snowstorm
the steam from the tea pot
circling

leaving its trace
in furrowed fields
-  the snowstorm

after the snowstorm
cat prints 
down the back steps

on the papers

of an evening raga

in a snowstorm . . .
the silence

the guard in his sentry-box
standing at ease

snowstorm-
flakes turn to filigree
an abandoned spider-web

as the first snowstorm arrives
flurry of small birds

cold spirits jumping off
the white dunes

Heavy snowstorm.
Slower and slower the steps
towards the border.

the pit pat of little feet
window to window

after a week of snowstorms -
the grave flowers

chases away the springwind
a bamboo cry

snowstorm -
a drift of white petals

through the snowstorm -
the snow-plough

twinkling in the treetop
snowstorm ends

fun and games
