Canyons of Snow

Canyons of snow,
More and more
Falling with uncanny regularity
A winter of records
A winter of broken pipes

But overall a winter of
Canyons of snow

It keeps piling higher
Every storm adds to the pile
Every morning saw the plows
Scraping and
Lifting and
Front-end loaders
Making mountains.

Canyons of snow
Hiding rooflines
And pedestrians
Intersections become
Blinded by the white
Oncoming cars upon you
With little warning

Canyons  of snow
May be with us till spring
Canyons reminding us of
Powerlessness in the face
Of Winter
