Snow Flower, East Missoula, Montana

Today’s snowflowers seem well accented by this graceful erasure poem created by Annette Robichaud out of text from the novel Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. The feel is similar to haiku's sparse beauty, albeit longer. 

the shoes would carry us

to the women’s chambers
my aunt began to teach me
I was diligent
she was diligent
bird prints in dust
bird prints in dust
our characters are phonetic in nature
bird prints in dust
were an erased spell

See more on this art form here in Annette’s May 2013 post at Hinged Journal of Converging Arts.
