"Storm on the Solstice"

TITLE - "Storm on the Solstice"
WHERE - Coquitlam River, Coquitlam, B.C. (2017)

"One must have a mind of winter/ To regard the frost and the boughs/ Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;/ And have been cold a long time/ To behold the junipers shagged with ice,/ The spruces rough in the distant glitter/ Of the January sun; and not to think/ Of any misery in the sound of the wind,/ |in the sound of a few leaves,/ Which is the sound of the land/ Full of the same wind/ That is blowing in the same bare place/ For the listener, who listens in the snow,/ And, nothing himself, beholds/ Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is."  
- Wallace Stevens, "The Snow Man"
