Vallecitos, New Mexico 12.12.15
Photograph by Hope Atterbury

before snow
burning the fields—
Taos mountain

dusk
behind white curtains.
piñon smoke

in the mirror
a glimpse
of emptiness

knitting,
my thoughts
unravel the past

an old story
the river wears the canyon
down

dream tossed
in rumpled
sheets

dawn
of the shortest days
still streaks pink
