WaterTo Chaya Grossberg's previous piece     Light hits my heart and the thin branches with the same promiseTo Chaya Grossberg's next piece

Light hits my heart
and the slope of snow like a smile.
The snow becomes this:
A woman and her new baby
wrapped in snow cloth
nestled sleeping in the lower lip hammock 
of a small curved branch.

The long haired woman's grace, stroking her child 
left to temporarily become a monster of snow
but she is back to caress
her small child under a snow blanket.

In the slope of a tiny branch
she does the work of the world.
