Snow clings to sides of trees
blown by worldly winds
of last night’s winter storm

In warm morning sunlight
thuds of ice fall like glaciers calving
pocking the snow below

Limbs let go of what weighs them down
to lift toward the sun and blossom

“Zen says everything preaches the dharma…”
– Nancy Mujo Baker, dharma teacher and philosophy professor
