Snow,  heavy and wet, started Sunday afternoon. Monday morning felt as though we’d all fallen into a brilliant blue and white painting.

Beautiful as it was, I went outdoors reluctantly, not really sure what I was looking for.

I heard them coming before they appeared over the treeline.

Strung across the sky, the geese are lines of calligraphy.

Zen koans for the earthbound.

    Do you know the haiku by Buson?

    Calligraphy of geese
    against the sky—
    the moon seals it.

    Winter arrived that morning in full glory. You caught it beautifully.
