She Persists


the celebratory nature
of the garden persists
despite winter’s imposed dormancy

The Winter Garden


neither
cold nor dormancy
stills the enchantment

Readying

grasses softly sing
slumber’s sweet lullaby
of approaching dormant days

Dark Sky

dormancy depends
on darkness gathering round
the necessary shroud
sheltering inchoate spring

Resting Fields

The days grow shorter, the land lays dormant.
Rest is essential to creation.
Winter will gestate Spring.
