THE CANADIAN MOSAIC PROJECT BY TIM VAN HORN TOUGH MUDDER THAI-STYLE WHISTLER 2015 GROWING FRIENDS AT THE WELCOME GARDENS

 

A Winter’s Sleep

 

 

So much sleeping

in this place. Think of all

that lies beneath the snow, lake trout

below the ice, bears in their dens,

their warm snores drifting above

the tree tops that are sleeping, too,

high above your own long sleep.

 

Even raven, with so much

to say and do, closes his eyes,

tucks his beak under his wing

and sinks into the season’s

dream-rich dark where all

his stories start.
