War Zone Funeral

Somewhere in Afghanistan

the covering power of snow restores

beauty to scarred ground.

Drifting down through thickening skies

flakes loiter on frozen earth but

undone by pumping hearts

melt on

bare skin of the new widow

entwined hands of generous lovers

cooling coffin wood.
