the snow is falling
and its December

the river is still running open
and reminds me of something unknown
rising
and adhering as frost and ice on the branches

my friend, my face
where do I find words for this

when I bow to the trunk
I become the tree

still speechless
I am close to the forest edge
and my body shivers in the wind
