message in the snow

(about a year ago, i started an odd collection of short poems all focused on the sheer agony of falling in love...most are written on scraps of paper, or along the margins of whatever i happen to be reading at the time...this one was written in the snow)

i traced a heart
in a patch
of newly fallen snow
in which i inscribed
your name
and mine

all my hopes
and fears
in one thin line
