On a limb

The thinner branches
can weigh down
this time of a year,
with overnight snow
and all the trappings
of the season.

Expectations
of what will be
collected on a limb,
grown from manageable cub
to Artic polar bear.

Shake the tree,
there’s only snowfall,
and a sense that whatever
you worried over,
was only meant
to give paws and crumble.
