Gray and brown,
dull dark green, no sheen,
a touch of rust
and new white snow.
Bald eagle pair
on a snag by Tula Creek
replicate the colors of the landscape —
wet-bark brown with snow on top.
Climbing the hill to Wakefield,
the snow is heavier,
the trees frosted, the fields solid white,
the color fades to shades of gray.
