Snow on snow

A view from my window. Everything is quilted in white. The branches are sugared with snow and the twigs are skeleton white fingers. The road is a frozen layer cake - snow on ice on snow, the layers building fall by fall. And when the dark comes the street is turned to cold gold beneath the street light. Lone walkers are heard in the night - snow compacting beneath their tread.
