A thirty-minute blizzard swept through Riverside Park on Friday morning. Snow poured down on a cross-country skier
on new Parks Department signs letting us know it’s okay to ski here
on a baby evergreen tree
on the Hudson River
on an elderly Asian exerciser
on a soccer team, calling it quits
on a Mutt and Jeff couple: trash can and lamp post
on Esau, happy in the snow
Then, suddenly, the snow stopped.
Today, Sunday, ice floes hustle down the Hudson toward the harbor
The cold remains, but the snow is mostly gone
No skiing today.
