Our Close Proximity


the storm
an instruction
of togetherness

Gathered Together


our purpose
ordained by proximity
to one another

Needles and Thread

stitching together
each season to the next

Signs

the pine wears sleet
like many steps of bird’s feet
leaving the sign of peace

Abridged

time crosses slowly
December’s snowy bridge
sojourn to the far side of remembering

Snowed Inn

no reservations needed
come on in and roost
beneath the snowy roof

History

the pinecone
elucidates the pine tree
on how things came to be

Winter’s Whitewash

brushstrokes hang in the air
as slow snow paints the world white

Winter’s White Dress

it comes and comes and covers all
the ground, the trees and all of fall

Thankfulness


In all her dazzling displays and subtle simplicities
nature’s ever evolving beauty nurtures
the ability to be grateful.
