    midnight in wyoming

    it's  midnight in Wyoming
    a fresh foot of snow
    lays atop an existing foot
    the moon is full
    i drive thorugh the middle of the sheen
    the sides fall away from my truck's
    wheels
    like softly sculptured waves
    in the side mirrors
    the virgin trail i leave
    sparkles in the moonlight
    like small diamonds

    Yes, on this one I can definitely see what you are describing. You open the world of the snow to someone who avoids the cold like a plague. I didn't in my youth, however, and I remember walking at night on the moonlit snow. Thank you for reminding me!

    this is beautiful, cowboy...you make snow desirable (can't say the rest of north american would agree with me right now though..haha)
