Spotless Cloak

Barren, winter trees
carry tiny flakes of white
crystalline pipe cleaner branches.

Parched, lifeless flurries enbalm each branch
reflecting the sparse morning sunlight against
the pale gray sky.

The spotless cloak falls away when I touch it,
disturbing its peaceful slumber,
beauty left best for the eye.
