with the lightest of flakes

on a honeycomb of petals

This December’s Interval


rock, leaf, ice, snow
elements and artifacts
underfoot

Steadfast In Tribulation

buffeted
by the elements
leaves hold to branches

Everything At Once


each element
finds the perfect place
next to all the rest

of respite and restoration

takes its holiday
at the marsh
