Comments about Leah Browning
On A Winter Morning In Minnesota, I Drink Tea And Think Of Sarah
The snow falls in petals, as if, just outside
my range of vision, there is a wedding taking place
in the dim blue light of a winter morning.
I memorize each brushstroke of this
painting, the bare branches of our neighbor’s tree
framed by the white lace curtains
of my kitchen window, and brew
a cup of the five-flower tea
that you sent me from Washington.
By the time I fetch the children
from school, every muddy hill
and bank of gray, unmelted slush
will be draped in snow,
glittering blue-white in the cold sunlight.
