juniper

juniper berries
deep blue against
the ivory drifts
each flake
reflects
redirects
refracts
the light
building from
a single beam
into an
unfettered blindness
that encapsulates
the scene
in pure white
nothing

the juniper bush
ripe with berries
a snow laden
evergreen against
the background
of blurred
misconception
the sparrows
hop atop
the virgin snow
uncaring
that the bounty
was never for
their greedy beaks
yet imagining every sweet
is theirs alone
