Making Sense Of Things


as I approach
the mist recedes
slow introduction to clarity

Green Centurions


regiment of pines
establishing the frontline
in the waning autumn light

Each Leaf In Its Own Time


the landscape
fills
with color

Calling Forth Green


between
the snow and clouds
evergreens conjure spring

Compression


density of time
everything craving light
as days shorten

Kitchen Window View

unswerving is
the comfort of conifers
dependability of green

Demonstration

as snow recedes devoted pines
demonstrate being green
for leafless trees

 

Undaunted


by winter’s demands
evergreens refuse to release color or needles
and stand in defiant contrast to the ever greying landscape.
