Cold November Night


winter’s dusk
descends
the landscape shivers

Until Next Year


grass waves goodbye
to the deep blue
of the cold sky

Obeisance


in deference
to the cold
hosta leaf curtsies

Cosmos of Cold


galaxy
of sparkling gold
stars gather on the window

Eyelet River


lacing the surface
cold threading
shore to shore

In Deference To Illumination


touched by light
so turned to gold
alchemy of cold

Secrets


winter gathers
at the pond’s edge
hiding cold amongst the reeds

Cold Bloom

outside an arctic cold
warmed by the hot pink
of a houseplant’s bloom

Bittersweet

in iced sunlight
brightness sweetens
the bitter cold

Morning Moon

diamond edged air
cuts like a knife
morning moon’s cold light

Gathering

cold gathers
in the tree line
stronger than November sun

Efforts of Ice

sedulous winter
tries again and again
to make the cold hold
