Looking Out the Window on a Winter Morning: Julie Hungiville LeMay

Snow breathes in hushed layers,
            blurs with sleep
                        garden stones, bare lilacs.
Each flake singular, born of water,
            cloud, nothingness, merges
                         to unveil a baptism of light, an indigo
                 eulogy of shadow.
In splintered dawn the land sighs:
            downdraft of the owl’s white wings.

Julie Hungiville LeMay was born in Buffalo, New York and moved to Alaska’s Matanuska Valley where she has lived, mainly in the town of Palmer, since 1978.
