night’s white blanket
tucked in all the green
the garden bed is cozy cold

Touch

night’s cold breath
caresses the branches
her touch released by the sun

berries bright cheer us on
through winter’s night
until spring’s dawn

Night Meets Day

bare branches
still covered in night
receive the morning sky

Pilgrimage

DSC02540
During the quiet of the night
they come from all directions on paw and hoof
to reach the sacred spot and journey beyond.

Yellow Tree


A tree of color shouts out into the bright blue night
calling to the night’s first, tiny star
friend, I’ve missed you.

Dark before Night


In the winter days darkness comes long before night.
It can seem the sun shines only in the distance
while the cold grabs on tight as a tick.
