Moonlit Snowfield

The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.

Receding snow covers the ground like a dirty blanket, crusty and stained, flecked with debris.

But the moon bathes it clean, transforming it

into a glowing blue sheet stretching across the open fields from treeline to treeline.

In the distance a lone coyote’s laughter echoes and fades to silence.
