The Petunia Looking Back

deep inside
a piercing
green eye

Midnight Snack


dawn light reveals
the wandering path
of a nocturnal browse

Perfection Realized


to see her
cup the sunlight
in her perfect petals

Darkness Softened


the black and white
of night snow
in moonlight

Reminiscences


hollow in the old tree
holding memories
of yesterdays

The Privileged


we watch
winter’s demanding dramatics
from inside our warm havens

Trimming


the eaves
wear a tatting of ice
fastened by a shuttle of cold

Countenance


joy’s gesture
expressive limbs
welcoming winter

Unseen Seen


it was revealed
the intricate web
connecting everything

Holding Up The Sky


snow sky
held high by
December morning’s tree

Becoming One Another


the icing pond
receiving rain
so many ways to be

Held

beneath the bark
one birch’s dark night
held sacred by the grove
