The snow is melting.
Too quickly. Too soon.
The trees - with their boughs and bare branches - have captured my eye.
I stopped. I looked. I listened.
I'm not even sure - what for.
And then - she appeared.
From somewhere over there. Beyond here - for sure.
My knight in brown horse's armor.
I blinked once...then twice.
Am I dreaming? Is this real?
And - just like that - she disappeared.
