19 January – Snow gulls

Like a second snow fall,
a flock of white wings float,
mimicking murmurations
in a spinning ermine coat.
As below, so above,
mirroring endless pearl,
the gulls glitter and glint
as the sun catches their swirl.
What is all this purity?
white every which way I look,
washing the weary world wonder-full,
like the once upon of a book.
