Cold Astronomy

grew on the window
a celestial body made known


morning sun
through feathered cold
how night lingers on the window

The River Free

the river desires movement
and uses all its wiles
to dodge stillness

Like A Tattered Flag

the barn endured
despite the wear

Marsh Alighted

the reeds
burning through daylight

This December’s Interval

rock, leaf, ice, snow
elements and artifacts

The Other Cabbage Rose

paradox of the purple bloom
petals holding both
snow and sun

Red Canoes Huddle In The Protection Of The Pines

as cold gathers
at the marsh’s edge
and starts to fill the sky

Treacherous Beauty

greeted by
the elegance of ice
in the glimmering morning
