Snow Tread Hearts by Rhonda Melanson

Poem name: Snow Tread Hearts Poet name: Rhonda Melanson Poem:  the morning after dad died two snow tread hearts in front of our house  bold in their space taking  from delivery truck’s tired grooves, perfect three point turn  graceful execution  twin arches heaving sympathy and joy.  flinging fast stubborn November snow appearing the previous night  fresh, settled. No longer sifting through black clouding our dusk.  Dual heart tips point at me  moving me forward two exact compasses. End of poem.
