In the winter white all horizon lines blend into one another
Dormant life springing forth from crisp frozen tundra
Branches and limbs at the mercy of northern winds
Winds that funnel out onto the exposed plains
Tree lines follow water, evidence of a river
Fence lines follow property, evidence of ownership
Phone lines follow the future, evidence of connection
A monotone and muted world, challenging the tender and less courageous
