darkening sky ...
the snake curves 
into my path

    a path to the mailbox...
    winter moonlight

    river walk
    the depth of the water
    between the stepping stones

    darkening sky
    cry of a mom
    for child

    On the way home
    suddenly a black cat
    crosses my path

    darkening skies
    before twilight, falls
    a gentle rain

    the curve of an egret's shadow

    high mountain meadow---
    a snake curls around
    the sound of its hiss

    I am looking out of the window and seeing a darkening sky, I know exactly what you mean. Beautiful poetry.
