a white owl settles
on the telephone pole
snowflakes swirl

    white owl
    settling on the telephone pole --

    (preferably a single snowflake)

    hard to imagine, nevertheless you could

    wings fluttering, in landing

    reminiscence of slow-motion swirling snowflakes

    smart ravens carry walnuts
    to the road where cars smash them
    - instant meal of walnut pieces

    raindrops ...
    streaming down the cool window pane
    my fingers remember
