A Close Shave


Snow in sculpted swirls is laid

against the cheek of earth’s domain;

lathered foam in sun and shade

protects the stubble that remains

beneath the banks of shaving cream,

where life and breath desire to grow;

 lay the strop to winter’s seam,

and shave her close, to spring below.

      🙂 Not even in all your lathering? I thought of it after doing an art project with my students using shaving cream and paint – there was a poem hiding in all that mess!
