the hush of tires
against snow

    Beautiful, Carol. Captures the feeling so well. And then in Spring, I open the windows a little to hear the red-wings. I'm in Northern Wisconsin.

    Country roads home
    listening to beauty
    through static

    open patio door -
    perpetuity of dark waves breaking

    a placid lake ... "
