snow on the path

a gust
hood slips free
tousled toque slides
    stops
on the newly shaven brink

monk pushes
a few more scoops
  clears the path
straightens his precarious hat

  2. Sometimes it is not easy to clear a path....but it can be done one scoop at a time.

  5. straightens his hat - more to that, nicely done, what we value is what we cherish.

  8. Brother Ollie,

    I suggest that the tired monk might require a change of hat. Something tied under the chin which will serve three purposes...Keeping the hat in its place, thus freeing hands for less fraught shovelling. Might also keep chins up:)
    Take care and keep warm,
    Eileen
