Evergreen Depths 1/19/2012

Robins chitter from Evergreen depth;

worms safe under snow blanket

at least from sharp beaks and rain.

Branches overwhelmed ricochet

day and night; departed from their

growth position, they reside on crusted snow.

Partially entombed limbs mimic new growth;

ice warfare’s casualties scattered knee deep.

Voiceless  victims fed into mulch shredders.
