February Fog

Cold robin in a barren reww

Fog

Soft branches
Soft cliffs
Filtered wings
carry softened geese
urged by nesting
northward over the pale
river; a betrayed
robin protests
this icy setback
with sad chirps
and fluffed feathers.
Miracles sometimes
creep in under
cover even denser
than freezing fog
after a January thaw.
