In December 1999, I sent out to a distribution list the following wintery lines

Through and past the powdery snow
Through and past the wet slush

Kathleen Beall responded:

into the spring and the returning songbirds
into the spring and the persistent blackflies

Two lines for summer and fall each and one line for a timeless moment and the circle of call and answer will achieve a poetic completeness.

And so for day 157
