Cold Astronomy


galaxies
grew on the window
a celestial body made known

Intricacies


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
dutifully
despite the wear

Marsh Alighted


the reeds
ignited
burning through daylight

This December’s Interval


rock, leaf, ice, snow
elements and artifacts
underfoot

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
