How it all became clear (Day 728)

How your day was 
crystalline  gulping
great mouthfuls of cold
along the way 
to your end   
of a snow-muted rainbow

How it all became
clear   wind-scoured
clouds lightened
violet mountains resting 
on layers of bare trees

How  like a Japanese quilt   
it was   tinted every delicate 
shade of taupe   edged 
with mauve
in the melancholy 
manner of winter
