Snow Flower

Snow covered aspen grove

high in the Eastern Sierras
an Aspen tree
lets its last
spade shaped
translucent, tattered

The stem
of that leaf
spears the snow,
like a flagpole,

A soft breeze
pushes the leaf
spinning round and round,
twisting, turning,
without sound
or a moral compass.

Aspen Leaves in Snow
